Earthworks and traffic on-site

This week the team from Pat Munro is busy excavating earth and forming a piling platform to ready the site for construction of the Raigmore Active Travel Link.

Earth is being excavated and removed from site before materials for the construction are brought in. This will result in some increased traffic through Raigmore estate for approximately two weeks, until around 22nd May.

The formation of a piling platform is also taking place. This is a secure platform built to support the weight of the piling rig, a heavy piece of equipment which will be used to lift the sheet piles into place when that phase of construction starts.

As with all work on the Active Travel Link, work is only permitted to take place between the hours of 8am and 7pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays. However, we anticipate working 08:00 until 17:00, Monday to Friday, for the most part.

A road brush will be in use at Raigmore estate to clear any debris left by the transport of earth and materials.

Should you have any concerns or questions about this, or any other phase of the works, please contact
