Stromeferry bypass

Annual inspection reports

We have been assessing 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. The Highland Council has appointed geotechnical consultant AECOM Infrastructure and Environment Ltd, to carry out annual inspections and to advise on required works. AECOM has been advising on the rock slope condition since 2012. The detailed annual inspection reports undertaken by AECOM complement the daily and monthly roadside inspections which we undertake.
