Transport Scotland has confirmed that Soil Engineering will start work on a three week ground investigation for repair and refurbishment of road bridges on the A95 tomorrow.
The £116,000 ground investigation near Craigellachie will involve two weeks of work undertaken under traffic control and a third week of off-highway work.
The work will include sonic drilling, which Soil Engineering has subcontracted to Geosonic drilling.
“These ground investigations works are an important investment in upgrading the bridges to ensure they remain fit for purpose for many years to come,” said Andy Thompson who works for Transport Scotland’s term maintenance contract Bear Scotland. “We have planned and co-ordinated the investigations with the geotechnical contractor to minimise disruption as much as possible to the A95.”
