Flood defences works compound
Flood defences works compound
Viewed from Friar's Bridge, looking over the east bank of the River Ness. The unfinished stone-faced walls above the river bank are part of the newly installed flood defences. The works are using an area of land just below the bridge, which was formerly the site of a swimming pool, for storage of materials. The site is due to be redeveloped as a 165 bedroom hotel.
River Ness flood alleviation scheme
A 24.75 million project started in August 2013 and is due to be completed in Spring 2015. The Scottish Government is funding 80 per cent of the cost of the building work, the balance being met by the Highland Council.
The flood defences will protect 800 homes and 200 businesses in the city centre and will feature a public arts programme to complement streetscape enhancements.
