Tarland Trails Trail Centre
Tarland Trails initially began in 2016 as a project to develop skills focused trails and pump track. CRC were principal contractor and worked with designer Cycletherapy for this phase of the trails.
The works involved the construction of a 2m wide footpath on the road verge of the A92 at Dunnottar Castle. The aim was to connect two rural bus stops with no paths, to a route to Dunnottar Castle, increasing the safety of users and to help encourage use of public transport to visit this tourist attraction. This project involved:
The logistical challenges of traffic management, material deliveries and construction on a top of a steep embankment were over come through good communication and forward planning by experienced staff. CRC’s site and project manager particularly contributed to the success greatly by coordinating multiple subcontractors and ensuring the various specification requirements of the VRS barriers and Highway reinstatement were adhered to.
There were no instances of environmental damage or other accidents or incidents.
