What’s the NRA ever done for us? Rebuilt the Bisley roads, that’s what

Many people moaned that the initial stage of the NRA’s road-building project at Bisley Camp was slipshod and/or likely to disintegrate, based on the contractor effectively dumping 2″ of tarmac on top of the existing surface.

Things have improved since it was laid a month or so ago, as this picture shows:

Top to bottom: new road surface; new road edging; old surface.

As well as renewing the range road running behind Century (and roads at other points on the camp, including the one down to Caravan Site 7), the NRA has also tarmacked the car parking area behind Century. UK Shooting News has heard a few grumbles that this has reduced parking capacity, though the ingenuity of shooters will probably find a way around that.

At the time of writing, the road down to Short Siberia is still untarmacked. UKSN understands this is because of council concerns about slow-worms living in Polledoak Slade, the woods to the right-hand side of Century where the road runs through. It is unclear exactly why tarmacking the road would make any difference to the slow-worms.

    I kinda agree with not tarmacing SS,as long as the potholes get fixed and the car parks are NOT used by the NRA contractors as storage areas!
