Tain town center £ 112k project aims to help Ross Town’s Easter coronavirus rebound
Work on a town’s public parking lot in Easter Ross will help help the local economy bounce back from the coronavirus crisis.
This is the hope of the councilors as a £ 112,500 Tain public car park project kicks off.
The City Center Fund for the Highland Council project is centered on King Street in Tain and involves the construction of locally sourced stone sandstone walls.
The local authority says the “transformation” has already started with main contractor McGregor Construction Ltd having already laid foundations for the stone masons, AB Masonry of Nairn, to start the sandstone walls this week.
McGregor Construction is digging the site for new curbs and sidewalks and has also started work on the steps between the upper and lower parking lot. After that, the parking lot will be refurbished and doubled.
Councilor Fiona Robertson, Easter Ross Area Committee, said: “It’s great to see the work going on at the King Street parking lot, which will dramatically improve our parking facilities available in Tain for locals and residents alike. visitors. The new parking lot will help welcome people back to Tain for shopping and sightseeing and will help boost the local economy as we move forward in resuming the pandemic.
This is one of the many projects implemented by the Highland Council that the local authority is marking in its #HighlandRoadsRecovery campaign featured on social media.
The local authority instructs the public on how to report damage to roads and sidewalks maintained by the Highland Council, including potholes. This can be done using the online forms on the Council’s website at www.highland.gov.uk/report
