UPDATE ON THE A832 FAIRY GLEN
Work carried out since the original slippage in 2011 has been a continual review and repair process with Highland Council (HC) over this period. The conclusions from the original geotechnical report were to do nothing which was not acceptable as the road would have been lost, do everything suggested in the report which was unaffordable or protect and repair as appropriate, which was the option chosen. HC was helped by a series of mild winters, which limited additional damage to the road.
In my opinion the communication with HC roads engineers since that time has been excellent. I was always in a position of knowledge so that I could let the community councils and residents know at what stage the works were and what was to happen next. Without the final resurfacing that has taken place in the past few months I do not think the road would have survived even in a mild winter. All I have had recently from locals is positive feedback.
