A four acre extension to Lockerbie Mill 1 log yard is well underway, with phase one of the project on schedule to be completed by Christmas.

The northern extension will provide a larger storage area for unsorted and sorted logs, increasing the range and flexibility with which the logs can be cut in mill 1. The £3m extension includes the construction of a perimeter road and concrete slab for log storage. It will be serviced by a purpose built Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS), including solids and oil interceptors to handle all surface water drainage. The project has been supported by design engineers, Asher Associates, while the principal contractor on site is Hardie Engineering.
