Work is to be undertaken at the Corran Narrows on Loch Linnhe waters to establish ground conditions which will help inform the detailed design of the infrastructure requirements for roll on/roll off vessels to serve the route.

The Highland Council has awarded a contract to Causeway Geotech Ltd of Ballymoney, County Antrim, to carry out the ground investigation which involves bore holes, trial pits, provide samples and testing of the underlying materials to establish full details of the existing ground conditions.

The information is vital to the detailed design work that is currently being progressed by Wallace Stone, who are assisting the Council’s Project Design Unit in providing detailed design, marine and civil engineering and supporting services.

The ground investigation works are being carried out for 8 weeks with works programmed to commence on 16 October 2023.

These works have no bearing on the operating of the current passenger service and will not affect the return of the MV Corran.
