The Highland Council undertook the River Ness Flood Alleviation Project within Inverness City Centre which involved construction of a Flood Defence Wall on either side of the River Ness.  The project consisted of two construction phases and in both phases Pat Munro carried out the road surfacing packages.

Phase 1

Morgan Sindall awarded the Road Surfacing Package to Pat Munro in June 2014; the 12 month project involved carrying out reinstatements, Street Scape and Carriageway re-construction within 18 individual areas on Inverness City Centre Streets.

The works involved various specifications of tarmacadam including significant areas of Hot Rolled Asphalt, within this Pat Munro also undertook installation of a red pre-coated chip within traffic sensitive areas.

In Bank Street, Profile Planning took place to prepare the existing road for widening and revising the grade and slope of the carriageway to suit the new drainage installation.

In addition to Road Surfacing, Pat Munro also undertook the Road Markings Package within all areas involving the application of over 3000m of markings, symbols and road studs.

Phase 2

In October 2014 and after successful completion of phase 1, Pat Munro also worked on phase 2 of the project which involved installing the flood defence wall between the iconic Friars Bridge to the mouth of the River Ness.

Pat Munro supplied, hauled and laid over 3,500 tonnes of asphalt materials and carried out 2000m2 of reinstatement, 4,100m2 of new construction and 1100m2 of footpath construction.
