Assessment of final shortlisted options

Option Assessment Summary Tables

The twelve implementability criteria used at the initial sifting stage were expanded and Option Assessment Summary Tables were developed for each of the three final options.

Each option was assessed against a range of Engineering, Constructability, Environment, Operational, Financial, Public Acceptability, and Reputational criteria, as well as the Estimated Time to Completion, Interface with Forestry and Land Scotland, Consenting and Phasing Considerations.

Commentary for each option is detailed in the Options Assessment Summary Tables included as Appendix D of this report.
