Inspection reports for the A830 between Kinlochiel and Glenfinnan: EIR release
FOI reference: FOI/20/00016

Information requested

You asked for:

“Detailed Inspection reports in terms of the Transport Scotland Trunk Road Inspection Manual from 1 January 2017 to date for road section A830 trunk road between Kinlochiel and Glenfinnan  known as 17208/15 : Dubh Lighe Bridge to Glenfinnan Sign.”

Response

As the information you have requested is ‘environmental information’ for the purposes of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs), we are required to deal with your request under those Regulations.  We are applying the exemption at section 39(2) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), so that we do not also have to deal with your request under FOISA.

This exemption is subject to the ‘public interest test’.  Therefore, taking account of all the circumstances of this case, we have considered if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption.  We have found that, on balance, the public interest lies in favour of upholding the exemption, because there is no public interest in dealing with the same request under two different regimes.  This is essentially a technical point and has no material effect on the outcome of your request.

Please see attached Annex A to this response – inspection reports from 1 January 2017 – 8 January 2020.
