This major project involved laying a culvert and overlying access road on one of the busiest roads connecting England and Scotland.
Improvements to the A76 were necessary due to the risk of subsidence caused by constant ground movement and erosion.
The Scottish Executive awarded R H Irving Construction Ltd with the task of undertaking remedial works to stabilise this section of the road. The works involved creation of an extensive reinforced concrete retaining wall, fixed to the existing slope using rock anchors.
