RPS provided Environmental Clerk of Works (ECoW) services to Wills Bros/John Paul Joint Venture for the Kincraig-Dalraddy A9 upgrade. The scheme passes through the Cairngorms National Park, Alvie sites of special scientific interest and a tributary of the River Spey. Working with the Joint Venture partners, our ECoW received high praise resulting in a score of 9/10 (“Exceptional”) for Environmental Protection under the Considerate Contractor Scheme.
Kincraig-Dalraddy A9 upgrade
Wills Bros/John Paul Joint Venture
Cairngorms National Park, Scotland
Passing through the Cairngorms National Park, Alvie SSSI and a tributary of the River Spey SAC, the scheme required the highly sensitive management of numerous protected habitats and species. In particular, hairy wood ants, red squirrels and otters.
The tight construction schedule meant increased pressure to identify and advise on deliverable mitigation measures that would meet the UK and European legislation concerned, without causing project delays.
