A830 Arisaig ‘Road to the Isles’ 

Designing for major schemes

Grontmij undertook, for Morrison Construction, the detailed design of this £23 million scheme to upgrade Britain’s last remaining single track trunk road to double carriageway standard.

Overcoming challenges

The geotechnical challenges were significant and involved the design of earth and rock cuttings, shoreline protection adjacent to Loch nan Uamh and earthworks for sections of road crossing a waste tip and a deep peat bog.
