A COLLAPSED section of road which links to an Inverclyde beauty spot has been repaired.

Work has been completed on a section of Dunrod Road at the junction of Old Largs Road near to Greenock Cut Visitor Centre.

Inverclyde Council recently created a temporary bypass before permanent repairs were carried out.

The project included the installation of drainage underneath the road connecting to a new filter drain.

A retaining structure was also built and the carriageway resurfaced.

There were temporary speed restrictions in place during the works.

The temporary bypass will be used as an additional passing place going forward.

The budget for the project, including all works involved in the installation of the temporary bypass, is approximately £80,000.

The section of road links to the Greenock Cut Visitor Centre, which is one of two Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park sites managed by Inverclyde Council along with Lunderston Bay near Gourock.

The local authority has invested more than £500k across both sites in recent times to improve existing facilities to enhance the visitor experience.

A separate section of Dunrod Road close to Shielhill Farm has also been affected by extreme weather and other factors which resulted in a partial failure of the road.

The council has set aside almost £2 million to address the issues there and officers are currently progressing site investigations and surveys prior to preparing detailed designs.
