    Alltec Construction were appointed by The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland to resolve an ongoing Health & Safety concern on site during their largest event, The Royal Highland Show. Cattle & other livestock are kept in the Lowland Hall and are walked into the main ring, crossing the pedestrian walkway. During the event up to 100,000 people can be on site and closing this main artery caused major congestion on site.

    We collaborated with Bell Ingram to design and install a culvert for people to walk under and for livestock to cross over. Quickly being nick named the ‘udder pass’, the livestock fly-over resolved all congestion issues on site now allowing all show livestock to make a smooth journey to the main ring and allowing visitors to freely around the show ground.

    Willie Gill, Chairman of The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland, in an interview with The Scotsman:

    By improving the flow of livestock and people through the showground, everyone’s experience is improved greatly.
