Road Closure – Drimnin Road – May 15 – June 1 2023
Update today May 12 From Highland Council
To keep you updated, we will not be commencing on the 15th May as planned. We have encountered some technical issues that can hopefully be resolved and if so we are aiming to start week commencing 22nd May (weather permitting – we can’t Surface Dress in the rain).
In the interest of health and safety of our workers we carried out a site specific risk assessment and there are not enough adequate safe places for the Surface Dressing plant to pull off the road and let cars through. We have also made special arrangements for the school transport driver and local transport office has been informed by email. I have also informed the driver that if its raining there will be no restrictions in place – as previously explained we can’t surface dress in the rain.
