A861 Drynie Hill (Killochmoidart)

This Project consists of the construction of a two lane single carriageway by widening the existing single track road, with associated earthworks, road construction and drainage works.

Wills Bros Ltd undertook the extensive site clearance of 2 hectares of forestry in order to construct the works. A further 3500m3 of Rock was drilled and blasted and reused onsite for construction purposes. Works also include the removal of existing cross carriageway culverts and replacement with twin wall uPVC pipe. Other drainage works include excavation of new ditches and offlet grips.
All works carried out within the strict boundaries of a triple SI area.
