Annual inspection reports
We have assessed the condition of the rock face on the A890 Stromeferry Bypass since it was opened to traffic in 1970. Much of the rock face has been netted to mitigate the risk of falling rocks reaching the road and railway. We are currently in the fourth year of a 5 year contract with the geotechnical consultant AECOM Infrastructure and Environment Ltd, the inspection contract will run until 2020. AECOM has been advising on the rock slope condition since 2012. The detailed annual inspections reports undertaken by AECOM complement the daily and monthly roadside inspections which we undertake.
