Name:Walkover survey - Foyers to Knocknagael OHL upgrade
Organisation:Catherine Dagg
Date:Jan 2013


A desk based assessment and walkover survey were conducted by C Dagg in 2013 to consider the likely effects on sites and areas of archaeological and cultural heritage interest of the proposed works associated with the Knocknagael to Foyers overhead line upgrade, including likely tower access requirements. The objectives were to identify the cultural heritage baseline along and in the vicinity of the existing overhead transmission line, proposed access routes and other construction or lay down locations; assess those identified areas in terms of their archaeological and historic environment potential; consider the effects of the construction and operation of the proposed upgrade on the baseline cultural heritage resouirce and to identify measures, where appropriate, to mitigate any predicted adverse effects. <1>
