Stromeferry Bypass Options Appraisal

Stage 1 of the options appraisal process for Stromeferry Bypass is now complete and the final version of the report is available to view by using the links above.  A draft report of the findings was presented at a public meeting in Lochcarron Village Hall on the 27th April and the comments received are shown in Appendix B of the final report. The Highland Council TECS Committee was invited to approve the recommended options on the 16th May and agreed that they should be taken forward to the next stage.

Stage 1 has included input from representatives of the local community and regulatory bodies through a series of stakeholder workshops held in Strathcarron and Inverness.

The options appraisal is being prepared using the Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance (STAG) and the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges (DMRB). Refer to the External Links section on the right hand panel for the STAG and DMRB website pages.
