Orchardbank - Closure Of Access Track To Country Park

The access track, which runs from Orchardbank Industrial Estate to Forfar Loch Country Park, is being upgraded as part of the development of the new business park.

The work is being carried out in two phases the first of which starts next Monday, 15 November. The track will be closed from Monday for three weeks and will reopen on 6 December. The second phase of the upgrading work will start on Monday 10 January and the track will be closed for around 6 weeks from that date.

The track is being upgraded to form a new road connecting the new business park with the Industrial Estate, following the line of the current access track.

The new road will provide users of the country park with significantly improved access to the southern car park.

The Country Park is not affected by the works, and the southern part of the Loch can still be accessed via the loch-side track. However the council regrets any inconvenience caused to users of the southern car park while this work is underway.
