Update: Dollar Forest Timber Harvesting & Haulage

MCC has been advised that the timber harvesting work will start week commencing 16th August and that timber haulage will likely start week commencing 22nd August. Warning signage will be erected on the Upper Hillfoots Road in advance of haulage commencing. These works are expected to last into early 2022.

Prior to starting timber haulage, Tilhill has advised it is planning to carry out some repairs to the upper forest road and this will involve lorries running material in from a nearby quarry. These works are also likely to start week commencing 16th August and the quarry lorries will be running for approximately 2 days.

It is planned to run the majority of the timber lorries before 10am and after 3.30pm during week days. It is likely that there may however be the odd lorry running between these times and Tilhill has advised that it will try to minimise this where possible. The plan is to not run lorries during the weekends.
