A9 Luncarty to Birnham
Practecology was appointed as the Ecological Clerk of Works as part of the delivery of the advanced archaeological inspections for a 9.5km section of road dualling north of Perth, Scotland.
Prior to the excavation of trenches, Practecology was required to undertake ecological surveys for a range of protected species to inform works including badgers, nesting birds, otter, water vole and beaver. This information was used to confirm suitable access paths, the works time-table and was also used during consultation with the statutory regulators SNH and SEPA.
Practecology was also responsible for overseeing the satisfactory re-instatement of fields on completion of all works.
