New £60,000 Road Safety Project on the A87 at Munerigie underway

 

A new £60,000 road safety project on the A87 at Munerigie two miles west of Invergarry is underway this week with work set to take approximately three weeks to complete.

The project will involve teams installing new safety barriers which will protect road users from roadside hazards including trees and steep drops.

To keep roadworkers and road users safe during the project, temporary traffic lights and a 30mph speed limit will be in place throughout the duration of the improvements.

Further safety improvements will take place in the coming months which will see teams install new road signs in the area.

Strict physical distancing protocols will be in place to ensure all site personnel remain safe once the project gets underway. 

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “Road safety is a top priority at BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland, and this scheme on the A87 at Munerigie is part of our commitment to improving road safety on the trunk road network.

“The temporary traffic lights are essential for the protection of our workforce as well as motorists. Due to the nature of the works the traffic management will be in place continuously, however our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance and would encourage motorists to plan their journeys before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information, and where possible allow for extra time to reach their destination.”

Real time journey information is available from Traffic Scotland on www.trafficscotland.org or twitter at @trafficscotland or the new mobile site my.trafficscotland.org
