£180,000 SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

 

A9 South of Georgemas Station

 

Works begin on Monday 11 March for two weeks

 

·         Overnight road closure in place for safety, Friday 22 March 7pm-7am

 

Motorists using the A9 at Georgemas Station will benefit from an improved road surface as £180,000 worth of resurfacing works are set to be carried out next week.  

The works will see over 1600m resurfaced, creating a smoother and safer road for road users.

The project is set to begin on Monday 11 March and is programmed to take two weeks to complete, with daytime works taking place each day between 7am and 7pm and on one night (Friday 22 March) between 7pm and 7am. No works are currently planned on Saturdays and Sundays.

The A9 will remain open throughout the daytime improvements, however a 10mph convoy system and temporary traffic lights will be in place to ensure the safety of road workers and motorists. All traffic management will be removed outside of working hours although a temporary speed limit of 30mph will remain in place as traffic will be running on a temporary surface.

Due to the narrow road widths across the bridge, on Friday 22 March the works will be carried out overnight under a full road closure. A 31-mile diversion route will be in place via Wick, utilising the A99 and the A882.

Emergency services will be able to pass through the works at all times, and local access only will be maintained when it is safe to pass through the work area.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said “These essential £180,000 resurfacing works will upgrade the existing road surface, greatly improving the quality and safety for road users.

“The traffic management is essential for ensuring the safety of road workers and motorists during the project. We have programmed the majority of the works to be carried out during the week to help minimise disruption as much as possible. The one overnight closure is essential to keep everyone safe due to the narrow width of the road at this section of the A9.

“Our teams will do all they can to carry out the improvements as quickly and safely as possible.  We thank motorists for their patience ahead of these road improvements and we encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date traffic information.”
