REPAIRS have been swiftly completedto a 15-metre long landslip which affected the A832 at the Fairy Glen on the Black Isle.
The slip was triggered by the exceptionally heavy rain at the end of last week.
Highland Council despatched a transport environmental and community services team to the beauty spot and reduced the road to single line working with traffic lights whilst repairs were carried out.
All the loose material was excavated down to bedrock and a new rock fill embankment has been constructed. It is due for completion on Wednesday and it is hoped that the road will be reopened to unrestricted traffic by the weekend.
Black Isle Councillor David Alston said, “The rapid response to this incident demonstrates the expertise we have within TEC services and shows the Council’s commitment to maintaining its road network.”
