Coastal Engineering Project Completed in Argyll and Bute
A £95,000 coastal erosion engineering project has been completed in Argyll and Bute.
This coastal scheme, which was paid for jointly by the Argyll and Bute Council and Scottish Water, saw the installation of 2000 tonnes of rock armor along a 140 meter stretch of coastline by the Anderson Group of Inverness.
Councillor Ellen Morton, Policy Lead for Roads and Amenity Services, said: “We could see that something had to be done to protect these houses from coastal erosion and we were pleased to be able to work in partnership with Scottish Water to complete the work.
“The work was quite complex and involved carrying out strengthening works to a coastal embankment while working next to the Scottish Water plant.”
Ruaridh MacGregor, Scottish Water’s Community Team Manager for Argyll and Bute, said: “The work involved was of a challenging nature. We were pleased to play our part in this effective partnership working between Scottish Water and Argyll and Bute Council, and to help deliver a solution.”
Originally forecast to last ten weeks, the scheme began in early April and has been completed four weeks early and within budget.
