Work on the first of Argyll and Bute Council’s Lorn Arc projects, a business park access scheme at Oban Airport, is going well.

The excavation work is now complete, with an extra 1000tonnes of earth removed to level the site.

Soft spots has also been excavated, capped and reinforced.

Other work has included initial ducting, which is vital to providing the future services to the site, as well as the start of drainage system construction.

This £600,000 scheme will see access improvements to the Oban airport site to open up a business park opportunity and will be delivered in two phases – the road itself first then the site specification after that.

The 150 metres of two-lane carriageway and single sided footway, with associated service ducting, drainage and street lighting, is expected to be complete by November 2015.
