Overnight works start Monday 13 November for four nights

Overnight road closures required for safety, 8pm – 6am


Essential culvert replacement works on two sections of the A86 west of Newtonmore at Auchmore and Cluny will be carried out by BEAR Scotland on behalf of Transport Scotland from Monday night next week.

The new culverts will replace the existing culverts that have started to break, causing some minor subsidence in the carriageway.  The new culverts will ensure the drainage system under the road at both locations continues to operate safely and that the carriageway above the culverts remains structurally stable.  

Due to the nature of the works the A86 will require to be closed to all traffic between Auchmore and Cluny to ensure the safety of road workers and users.

The overnight closures will begin on Monday 13 November between 8pm and 6am and will be in place for four nights.  During the closure an alternative diversion route will be signposted via the A86, A889 and A9. Local access will be accommodated at times when it is safe to do so.  Emergency vehicles will be able to pass through the works at all times.  The road will open as normal during the daytime.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said; “We do everything possible to minimise disruption when work is taking place but we have to replace the culverts across the full road width on this occasion and a road closure is required to do that.  

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.  We would ask drivers to pay attention to the traffic management measures and temporary signage in place during the work and to plan ahead as much as possible before starting their journey. It is always recommended to check the Traffic Scotland website and twitter account for the latest travel information.” 

Real time traffic information is available from Traffic Scotland at or twitter @trafficscotland.
