Second phase of £230,000 road safety improvements for A87 at Munerigie

Works set to begin Monday 4 March for up to two weeks

 

The second phase of an essential road safety project along the A87 near Invergarry is scheduled to start Monday 4 March and will see the completion of the £230,000 improvements.

The first phase of works saw 1km of carriageway resurfaced during February to improve the surface for motorists.

Teams are now turning to the second phase of the project which will see almost 900m of new roadside safety barrier installed. This second phase is programmed to begin Monday 4 March and will take approximately two weeks to complete. The works are weather dependent, and all relevant stakeholders will be updated to any significant changes or delays to the programme.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, there will be temporary traffic lights in place at all times throughout the works. Although works are only planned during the daytime, it is essential to keep traffic signals in place overnight for safety as traffic will be passing open excavations.  

Consultation has been carried out with all relevant stakeholders to inform them of the works in advance.

Commenting on the project, Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “The second phase of road safety improvements on the A87 at Munerigie will see the completion of the £230,000 project providing a safer journey for motorists. The project is part of continuing investment by Transport Scotland to improve the safety of the trunk roads for motorists.

We’ve planned these to be carried outwith the busy tourist season to help minimise disruption, and our teams will do all they can to complete the works 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.”

£230,000 Road Safety Improvements for A87 at Munerigie

Works set to begin on Thursday 14 February for up to three weeks

 

A project to improve road user safety along the A87 near Invergarry is expected to start on Thursday 14 February that will involve resurfacing improvements and safety barrier installation.

The £230,000 project, which is part of continuing investment in collision reduction by Transport Scotland, will see almost 1km of the carriageway resurfaced to improve skid resistance and almost 1km of new roadside safety barrier installed. 

The first phase of works will be carried out on 14-15 and 20-22 February between the hours of 7am and 7pm each day. The A87 will remain open during this time, however, to ensure the safety of roadworkers and members of the travelling public, a 10mph convoy system will be in place during the surfacing works.

The second phase of works will see the installation of the new safety barrier and is expected to begin early March. Once a start date for these works is confirmed then a further update will be issued.

Temporary single lane traffic management will be in place throughout both phases of works.

Consultation has been carried out with all relevant stakeholders to inform them of the works in advance.

Commenting on the project, Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “These £230,000 road safety improvements will greatly improve the road safety at this section of the A87 at Munerigie. The project is part of continuing investment by Transport Scotland to improve the safety of the trunk roads for motorists.

The traffic management arrangements that we have in place will ensure the protection of our teams as well as motorists, however the works have been planned to be carried outwith the weekend period to help minimise disruption. Our teams will do all they can to complete the works 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.”
