Perth & Kinross Council’s (PKC) Rannoch Timber Transport project is now underway with work starting on the timber transport routes road improvements on Monday 21st August. The project, with a grant awarded by the Strategic Timber Transport Fund and supplemented by funding provided by the Council, will result in over 8 miles of carriageway and edge strengthening, 12 embankment supports and the construction of 84 passing places along the B846 and B847.
Timber transport lorries will not be able to access the B847 Agreed Route from the B846 junction which is to the east of Kinloch Rannoch and should therefore use the B8019 Agreed Route via Queens View and Garry Bridge to access the A9 at Pitlochry.
This new web page has been set up for the Rannoch Timber Transport Project on the PKC web site from where more information can be accessed, including the scope of works and details of the five project phases, a programme of works for the next two weeks and associated road closures, school transport arrangements and contact details.

1. Updates on the PKC Facebook and Twitter accounts;
2. A community group email address for updates and enquiries;
3. Neighbour notification letters;
