£200,000 OVERNIGHT SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

 

A9 Kinveachy

 

Works start Sunday 7 July for six nights

 

Improvements are currently underway on the A9 at Kinveachy which will see motorists benefit from an improved road surface. 

The £200,000 investment by Transport Scotland will see improvements to a 800m section of the A9 creating a smoother and safer road for motorists.

The overnight improvements started last night, Sunday 7 July, and will take six nights to complete. The project will take place between 7pm and 6am each night with no works programmed for  Friday or Saturday nights. All surfacing improvements are due to be completed by 6am on Monday 15 July.

To ensure the safety of road workers and road users, temporary traffic lights and a 10mph convoy system will be in place during the works. Traffic management will be removed outwith working hours to keep disruption to a minimum however a speed restriction of 30mph will remain in place as traffic will be running on a temporary surface.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said. “The £200,000 surafcing improvements will greatly improve the road surface on this section of the A9, creating a safer and smoother journey for motorists.

“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of road workers and road users. We have taken steps to help minimise disruption for road users as much as possible during the project including carrying out the improvements overnight and avoiding working on Friday and Saturday nights.

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible and we thank motorists for their patience in advance while we carry out these works. We would also encourage road users to plan their journeys before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland wesite for up to date travel information.”
