Maintenance improvements for A96 Alexandra Way Underpass in Elgin 

Works start Monday 11 September for three weeks

 

Essential maintenance works are scheduled to take place on the A96 Alexandra Way pedestrian underpass in Elgin starting next week.  

The works will involve upgrades to the existing pedestrian facilities in the underpass, including replacing parapets and handrails with new steel versions.

The underpass is an essential pedestrian link in the town between the bus station and Cooper Park, shops and Elgin library, and the improvements will help ensure that the underpass continues to operate safely for pedestrians.  

The maintenance work will get underway from Monday 11 September for up to three weeks.  The underpass will remain open to pedestrians throughout the improvements, however temporary safety barriers will be in place to ensure safe passage past the work area.  The A96 trunk road will be unaffected during the works.  

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “These essential maintenance works will ensure that the Alexandra Way Underpass continues to operate safely for all pedestrians.

“We’ve arranged the works so that pedestrian access is maintained at all times during the improvements, however would ask all underpass users to follow any safety signs or footway diversions that are in place for everyone’s safety.”

The works will be carried out by BEAR Scotland and have been planned in consultation with Police Scotland, Moray Council and Transport Scotland.
