Black Isle, Dingwall & Seaforth members approve prioritised roads maintenance programme for 21/22

The roads structural maintenance programme for Black Isle, Dingwall and Seaforth will see over £500,000 of investment on the area’s roads and will be split between the Revenue and Capital budget.

The 2021/22 programme, which was agreed by Members of the Black Isle, Dingwall and Seaforth Area Committee earlier this week will focus on priority routes and scheme which had to be deferred from the previous year.

Safety inspections and input and feedback from Ward members were also used to prepare the programme.

The programme will see a £314,941,20 investment in overlay/inlay and £194,644,80 will be used for surface dressing.

Station Road in Dingwall was identified as a top priority by members at this week’s meeting with that section of the A862 seeing 560m of surface dressing.

Riverford Crescent will also get 1,457m of surface dressing and Riverford Drive approximately 230m of dressing.

In terms of the resurfacing programme 70m of the U2711 Bogallan – Allanglach Road will be raised at the junction with the B9161 Munlochy to A9 road and resurfaced. Resurfacing will also take place on 240m of the U2975 Corry Road – Ardnagrask – Aultvaich road.

Members also agreed that any additional roads funding would be used to refurbish the road at the Distillery Bends in Muir of Ord. This is an area all Members agreed would require considerable focus.
