Community benefit support to the Upper Tay Paths Group

‘Access to digger time is a challenge for us, especially getting a larger machine, so this contribution from BAM Nuttall Ltd is really hugely appreciated by the community here. It is a part of the overall project we would have really struggled with without their help,’ said chair of the Upper Tay Paths Group, Peter Howell.

The Challenge

The Upper Tay Paths Group and Feldy-Roo Fitness Trail voluntary group are building a new active travel trail in Aberfeldy.

The trail will be specially designed for all abilities in the community and stretch around a one-mile circuit. It will provide a level surface for use for people of all abilities within the communities including wheelchairs.

The Activity

As part of the construction of the trail the organisers required the services of heavy earth moving machinery to clear an area of ground that will be used as a car park.

The Result

A digger and driver were supplied by BAM Nuttall for the day, and the area, which will form the start of the trail, was cleared allowing the next phase of work to progress.

It is hoped that the trail will be open to the public later this year.
