Fort Augustus to Skye OHL Reinforcement

CGL’s Fort Augustus to Skye OHL Reinforcement project was a finalist at this year’s Ground Engineering Magazine Awards with Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure and BakerHicks for Ground Investigation Project of the Year.

With a length of 160km, the project presented every conceivable challenge to a ground investigation logistically, geologically and in terms of risk management over unmapped terrain in some of the most remote, inaccessible, and mountainous terrain in the UK within sensitive land areas, passing through two National Scenic Areas of Scotland. Geotechnically the project investigated some of the oldest rocks on the planet and the most variable rock terrains in the UK. Read more here.
