Causeway Geotech secures Inverness ground investigation

Transport Scotland has announced that it has appointed Causeway Geotech to undertake the ground investigation work for a scheme to remove a bottleneck at the Longman roundabout in Inverness.

The £138,000 contract is expected to start in early September and take four weeks to complete.

The project, along with another scheme creating a new link between the A9 and A96 in Inverness, will involve investment of up to £135M from Transport Scotland. The ground investigation work is expected to be used to make a decision on one of five options to create a grade separated junction at the site.

Scottish government cabinet secretary for transport, infrastructure and connectivity Michael Matheson said: “We are continuing to progress the design and assessment work for grade-separating this busy junction in the Highland capital.

“This ground investigation contract will help inform the design work for this much-needed upgrade having let the public see and provide their views on five possible options for the junction in May.

“The work is expected to start in early September with the vast majority of the work taking place off the line of the road, ensuring the need for traffic management is kept to an absolute minimum.

“Road users and local communities will be kept informed of our plans and we will endeavour to ensure that any disruption is kept to a minimum.”
