HC Deb 31 July 1958 vol 592 c204W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the mileage and estimated cost of road construction at Struy and elsewhere on the Lovat and other estates to be undertaken by the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board in connection with its Strathfarrar-Kilmorack Scheme.

Mr. Maclay

I am informed that in order to provide access to working sites in Glen Strathfarrar it will be necessary for the North of Scotland-Hydro-Electric Board to construct at an estimated cost of £25,000 two miles of new roads. Of this 1½ miles will be on the Lovat Estates and half a mile on the Struy Estates.

The existing road in Glen Strathfarrar will also have to be strengthened at an estimated cost of £150,000 to carry constructional traffic. This road is 13 miles long, of which half a mile is public road, 4¾ miles is in the Struy Estates, 7¼ miles in the Lovat Estates and half a mile in the Fairburn Estates
