Survey searches for Stromeferry landslide solution

Highland Council is working with URS to find out how periodic closure of the A890 near Stromeferry from landslides affects local organisations and businesses.

According to Highland Council, this strategically critical transport study will enable it to clearly asses the issues that arise from temporary closure of the 12km section of the road by Loch Carron following ground movement.

Rock falls and landslides have led to a number of temporary closures of the road to allow remedial work to be carried out and result in major transport diversions that the council says causes “significant additional transport costs to businesses and organisations, both in the locality and further afield”.

The council has said that the results of the survey will help shape improvement plans for the affected section of road between Lochcarron and Kyle.
