07 May 2013B851 Roadworks update
Please find below a summary of recent progress and the works scheduled to take place along the B851 this coming week.
The works which began last Monday on the Inverarnie Culvert are progressing well. The old culvert has now been removed and the new culvert sections have been installed. During the week ahead, it is planned that the culvert will be waterproofed and back filled. We envisage that the culvert will be open for traffic for local access only from 16/17 May 2013.
The posts for the village gateway signs have also been put in place this week. The bollards which are positioned on the village outskirts of Inverarnie and Croachy are due to be installed week commencing 13 May 2013 and will require very limited traffic management.
Elsewhere, the ditch installation and topsoil strip work at North Croachy will be ongoing week commencing 6 May 2013, and again will have limited impact on traffic.
At Littlemill Bridge, the bridge deck is now poured, and is planned to be waterproofed next week. Road works are ongoing either side of the bridge. It is planned that from 16/17 May to 21 May there will be a road closure between Mid Lairgs Quarry and the west side of the RES compound to allow the connection of the new road to the existing road. This will be carried out in conjunction with the completion of the works at the Inverarnie culvert. To confirm, the culvert will be opened for local traffic to allow access to the properties between the culvert and the RES Littlemill compound from 16/17 May 2013.
As always, if you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com or on 0800 011 3618.
19 April 2013Inverarnie road closure - April 29th for 3 weeks
Inverarnie road closure will commence from Monday, April 29.
The road will be closed for three weeks in order to remove and replace the existing culvert. A short diversion route will be put in place for road users.
The road will be fully closed during this period. The road closure will initially be from Mid-Lairgs junction (with access for local traffic only) through to the east of the access to Farr Community Centre. The access to Farr Community Centre will be maintained from Inverarnie during the works.
On completion of the Inverarnie culvert, the Contractor, R J McLeod, is intending to complete some road construction works at the Littlemill bridge site. This could last for up to five days including the weekend of the 18th and 19th May. To accommodate this, there will be a full road closure from Mid-Lairgs junction to approximately 100 metres west of the current site compound entrance at Littlemill Bridge. Local traffic will need to use the diversions that have been put in place and local residents west of the Littlemill bridge site will gain access from the west across the newly opened Inverarnie culvert.
Originally, it was anticipated that the road would be fully closed for two months but the construction team have been able to carry out the majority of the work under traffic management through the use of traffic lights and stop/go signs.
A letter will be delivered to all households living in the closure area on Monday so they are fully informed. Information will also go up on the Dunmaglass website and Twitter account.
