The evening focused on design constraints, project development, accessibility, ground investigation and considerations in terms of road dualling effects on the existing environment, surrounding infrastructure and landscape and how the design elements came together for the final design.  The structural design elements and considerations along the route at two main structures were highlighted to determine the solutions put forward for construction.   Finally the geological and environmental considerations were highlighted and the use of LiDAR geological ground modelling was presented detailing its use and the benefits of the modelling software on this project.

The next technical evening for the IHE Scottish Branch will be on the 19th February 2019 on the subject of Winter Maintenance.
