Path Building Work Complete

We are very pleased to announce that all path building work is now complete and all sections are fully open. A big thank you is due to our contractor Hitrak Ltd who has worked on all the new sections of the AKW over the past three years. Also sub-contractor David Reid Fencing who was responsible for providing stock and deer fencing as well as the various gate arrangements.

A word of caution. We still have two road crossing points on the A831. They will be with us for ever. Please take care when using the crossings and the short section on the carriageway.

Just a few pics of the final stages
