Freasdail Borrow Pits
Two planning applications to extract rock from within the wind farm site have now been approved by Argyll and Bute Council. The two applications will allow for a reduction in HGV vehcile movements to the site through the use of site won rock.
It is estimated that the ability to re-use the stone excavated from this site in the foundation layers of new wind farm roads reduced the number of vehicle movements on the public road network by around 580 vehicles.
Both locations for Borrow Pits at Freasdail have previously been used to win stone for construction of forestry tracks within Freasdail Forest.
