Crash barriers will remain on a stretch of road alongside Loch Ness in Scotland as safety work continues following a landslide.

The incident, which took place in December 2008, saw the metal crash barriers erected to the side of the A82 to help protect cars travelling on the road.

Safety work is now expected to cost £1 million as a retaining wall is strengthened, reports the Inverness Courier.

A spokeswoman for Transport Scotland said that studies into the project are still ongoing but that "safety is our top priority" as it consults with BT, which has foundations close by.

"It was necessary to plan the works carefully and liaise with BT," she told the news provider.

"The remainder of the lay-by is supported by a retaining wall that is in a poor condition and it is being closely monitored."

Earlier this month it was reported that Wicklow County Council in Ireland is considering the installation of 67 security bollards to prevent illegal parking in town.
