Works at King Street car park
Main contractor McGregor Construction Ltd have already installed foundations to enable stone masons, AB Masonry of Nairn, to begin construction of the sandstone walls this week.
McGregor Construction are now digging out the site for new kerbing and footways and have also commenced work on the steps between the upper and lower car park following which the car park will be resurfaced and lined accordingly.
Cllr Fiona Robertson, Easter Ross Area Committee said: “Its great to see work underway at King Street car park which will greatly improve our parking facilities available in Tain for locals and visitors. The new car park will help to welcome people back into Tain to shop and visit and help boost the local economy as we move forward in the recovery from the pandemic.”
This is one of many projects being delivered by The Highland Council that the local authority is marking in its #HighlandRoadsRecovery campaign featured on social media.
It’s very important to know how to report damage to Highland Council-maintained roads and pavements (including potholes). This can be done by using the online forms on the Council’s website at www.highland.gov.uk/report
