Good progress being made on Crovie slope stabilisation


Aberdeenshire Council has said that work is well underway to stabilise the landslip that cut off road access to the village of Crovie in September last year.

The council has confirmed that contractor Geo-Rope has started soil nailing work on the lower slope beneath the zone of recorded movement along the road.

The soil nailing will be followed by mesh installation to restrict further slope movement and halt degradation of the road surface ahead of road improvement work.

Test nails have been successfully tested and Geo-Rope is now starting work on installing the remaining 170 soil nails for the £500,000 scheme.

Work is expected to be completed in mid-November.
