Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) has announced a week-long extension to its slope stabilisation work above the A82 at Glen Righ, which started in early June.
The extra time will allow the commission’s contractors to undertake additional tree felling and debris removal from the hillside.
“The operation is going well but we are aiming to ensure there is no loose material on the slope over the summer in-case there are any periods of sudden high rainfall,” said FCS Glen Righ project leader Alex Macleod.
“We’ve consulted fully with Transport Scotland on this change to our plans and have also advised that once we are finished on site we will also reinstate the roadside verges below the site.”
FCS has said that a further four weeks of work will be undertaken in September to complete the remediation work.
