£350,000 SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

A9 South of Daviot

Works start Monday 24 April for up to three weeks

 

The A9 approximately eight miles south of Inverness is soon to be resurfaced following an investment of £350,000 from Transport Scotland.  

The road improvements will see a 600m section of the southbound dual carriageway south of Daviot resurfaced over three weeks to address any defects, cracks or potholes.  This will create a smoother road surface on this section of the A9, helping to improve road safety for all road users.

The £350K scheme is scheduled to begin on Monday 24 April and is expected to take up to three weeks to complete.  Works will take place on weekdays only between 7am and 7pm, with no works scheduled at weekends or on the May Day Bank Holiday on Monday 1 May.  

For the safety of both roadworkers as well as motorists, a 10mph convoy traffic management system will be in place during working hours.    Outwith working hours, a lane closure will remain in place for the safety of motorists until the resurfacing is complete.  

Commenting on the surfacing improvements for the A9, Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Unit Representative said:  “The £350,000 investment from Transport Scotland will allow our teams to carry out these essential resurfacing works at this section of the A9, greatly improving the condition and safety of the route in this area.

“We’ve taken steps to limit the impact of these works by avoiding working at the weekend and the May Day Bank Holiday, and our teams will do all they can to ensure that we complete the improvements to the A9 as quickly as possible.

 “We thank motorists in advance for their patience whilst we carry out these surfacing improvements, and would encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information and to allow extra time for travel.”
