Moray Way Development Project

On behalf of Moray Council COAT had been asked to project manage improvements to the Moray Way. Two distinct sections were identified for improvement one on the Moray Coast Trail near Lossiemouth and two on the Dava way south of Forrres. COAT were successful in applying for funds from Moray LEADER and the Legacy 2014 fund from Sportscotland; Moray Council also contributed to complete the funding package.

The Moray Coast Trail section has been completed where works saw the removal of gorse to retain and open up new coastal views, and the realignment of a 500m section to take out three steeply stepped sections, a further 800m was upgraded to a surfaced path which included drainage features.
