A9 LYNWILG & KINGUSSIE JUNCTIONS

From : 27th July 2020

To : 12th August 2020

Posted : 21st July 2020

Friday 24 July 

 

**UPDATE: SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS PLANNED FOR A9 LYNWILG AND KINGUSSIE JUNCTIONS POSTPONED UNTIL MONDAY 27 JULY**

Please be advised that due to operational reasons the £500,000 surfacing improvements planned for three sections of the A9 near Aviemore, outlined below, have been postponed by one night. 

Work has been rescheduled to begin on Monday 27 July with the project still expected to take place over three weeks. In an effort to reduce the programme of work, the surfacing improvements will be carried out between 7pm and 7am each night. No works are planned for Friday or Saturday nights.

Traffic management will remain the same as originally planned, with a 10mph convoy system in place during overnight working hours. Traffic management will be removed outwith these times, however a 30mph speed limit will be in place as traffic will be travelling over a temporary surface.

 

The project is now scheduled to take place as follows:

 

·        Lynwilg Junction – Monday 27 July to Tuesday 4 August (seven nights, excluding Friday and Saturday nights)

The B9152 junction will be closed for safety during working hours, with a signed diversion route will be in place via the B9152 to the A86 and A95 Junctions.

·        North of Aviemore Lynwilg Junction – Wednesday 5 August to Thursday 6 August (two nights)

All junctions will remain open.

·        Kingussie Junction – Sunday 9 August to Tuesday 11 August (three nights)

The A86 junction will be closed for safety during working hours, a signed diversion route will be in place via the B9152 to Lynwilg Junction and B9150/A86 Kingussie.

 

All relevant stakeholders have been informed of the changes to programme.

£500,000 OVERNIGHT RESURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

 

A9 Lynwilg and Kingussie Junctions

 

Works start on Sunday 26 July for three weeks

 

Motorists using the A9 near Aviemore are to benefit from an improved road surface as £500,000 worth of resurfacing works are set to get underway from Sunday.  

The project will see almost 2km of carriageway resurfaced across three sections between the A86 Kingussie and B9152/Lynwilg Junctions, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The overnight improvements are scheduled to start on Sunday 26 July and will take place over three weeks. The project will be carried out between 7pm and 5am each night with surfacing due to be complete by 5am Wednesday 12 August. No works are planned for Friday or Saturday nights.

To keep roadworkers as well as road users safe during the project, a 10mph convoy traffic management system will be in place over the extent of the project during overnight working hours. Traffic management will be removed outwith these times, however a 30mph speed limit will be in place as traffic will be travelling over a temporary surface.

The programme of work is outlined as follows:

 

·         Lynwilg Junction – Sunday 26 July to Tuesday 4 August (eight nights, excluding Friday and Saturday nights)

The B9152 junction will be closed for safety during working hours, with a signed diversion route will be in place via the B9152 to the A86 and A95 Junctions.

·         North of Aviemore Lynwilg Junction – Wednesday 5 August to Thursday 6 August (two nights)

All junctions will remain open.

·         Kingussie Junction – Sunday 9 August to Tuesday 11 August (three nights)

The A86 junction will be closed for safety during working hours, a signed diversion route will be in place via the B9152 to Lynwilg Junction and B9150/A86 Kingussie.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “This £500,000 essential resurfacing project will upgrade the existing road surface at these locations, greatly improving the quality and safety for road users.

“We’ve changed our ways of working to ensure all staff and the local community are kept safe at all times, and all personnel will be subject to strict physical distancing protocols in line with Scottish Government guidance.  Thorough risk assessments have been developed and cleansing stations will be implemented on site to ensure all staff remain safe.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance and would also encourage them to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information.”
