Taking into account feedback received during Stage 2 (Phase 1) we developed three additional options at the north end of the route, to the west of Riggend.
Option E1 had bridges over the A73 and Brakenhirst Road. It is the same as Option E but with a single carriageway to the west of Riggend.
Options G and H crossed the A73 at the same level and needed changes to local roads and access.
All the additional routes considered at Riggend:
- are the same as Option B, south of Greengairs Road
- go to the west of A73 at Riggend and provide single carriageways
- are affected by ground conditions as they cross peat west of the A73
The interactive maps show the additional options we assessed at Stage 2 (Phase 2). Use these maps to see the options considered and where we would need to build bridges and roundabouts and
