Bidding Opens for Berriedale Braes Upgrade

Bidding for the contract to upgrade the infamous Berriedale Braes has opened. The Scottish Government which is paying for the project expects it to come in for £9 million.

The alignment of the road and the tight bends that all drivers in the North know so well are to be improved.

The work is expected to commence next year.
