Moss Road improvement, Acharacle

The project involves resurfacing and upgrading of a 1km section of single track road which serves the housing on the north side of Loch Shiel. Scheduled to begin on site in late March, the project will take 18 weeks to complete.

The works are intended to improve access when the water level in Loch Shiel rises. The current road has several low lying sections which in times of flooding make access with a car impossible.

Councillor Graham Phillips, Chairman of the Council’s Transport, Environmental and Community Services Committee said: “The Council’s programme is committed to ensuring that we provide better infrastructure for the Highlands that is fit for the 21st century. These works will help to ensure that the local community remains connected. The new higher road level will help maintain good access for emergency vehicles and residents when the loch is in flood.”
