£260,000 SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

A87 Kintail Lodge to Clachan Duich Causeway

Works begin Monday 17 June for eight days

 

Motorists using the A87 from Kintail Lodge to the Clachan Duich Causeway are set to benefit from of an improved road surface as a project to upgrade a section of the route is set to start later this month.

The £260,000 investment by Transport Scotland will see surfacing improvements to a 2km section of the A87 from Kintail Lodge to Causeway, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists. 

The project is set to begin Monday 17 June and is programmed to take eight working days to complete. The improvements will take place between 7am and 7pm each day with surfacing works due to be completed by 7pm on Wednesday 26 June. No works are programmed for Saturday or Sunday.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, there will be 10mph convoy system in place during the works. All traffic management will be lifted outwith working hours however a 30mph temporary speed limit will remain in place as vehicles will be travelling over a temporary surface. The A87 will remain open throughout the project.

Consultation has been carried out with emergency services and relevant stakeholders to make them aware of the plans and share information about the project in advance. 

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “The £260,000 surfacing improvements will help address any defects on this section of the A87 and greatly improve the road surface for motorists. 

“The traffic management in place is essential to ensure the safety of road workers and road users, however our teams will look to do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible. 

“We thank motorists and the local community in advance for their patience while we carry out this project. We encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website before setting off for up to date traffic information.”
