Sheet piling progress update

Last week saw the start of the sheet piling phase of construction for the Raigmore Active Travel Link.

This phase is the most disruptive phase of the works and has caused some noise and vibrations for which we apologise. This phase is expected to be completed by 18th June. Throughout this period and until work is completed, the Pat Munro team will continue to monitor noise and vibration levels to ensure they are within legal limits.

To enable sheet piles to be manoeuvred into place has also brought about the need for some lane closures and footpath management.

Lane closures

There will be a further week of lane closures on the Raigmore Interchange slip road from the A9 northbound. This single lane closure will be in place from today, Monday 14th June, until Friday 18th June.

Footpath management

As part of the sheet piling work, it is necessary to introduce some controls on the footpath coming off the Golden Bridge onto Raigmore Estate from Inverness Campus. When this is necessary, members of the Pat Munro team will be located on the ramp, stopping members of the public using the ramp for short time slots (around three minutes) to ensure the safety of the public while a crane manoeuvres sheet piles into place. While the ramp is closed off, the steps will be unaffected and will be open.

Those who need to use the ramp will only have to wait for a few minutes before the crane has been moved and they can proceed again.
