A835 Conon Bridge and Corntown Crossroad Junctions


Work starts on Monday 16 March for two weeks


Motorists using the A835 at Conon Bridge and Corntown Crossroad Junctions are set to benefit from an improved road surface as work to upgrade these sections of the route is set to get underway this week.

The surfacing improvements will address any existing defects in the road, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists. Solar powered LED road studs are to be installed throughout the junction which will substantially improve the junction layout during the hours of darkness.

The overnight project will get underway from Monday 16 March and is expected to take up to two weeks to complete. The improvements will be carried out between 7am and 7pm each night, with work due to be complete by 7am Friday 27 March.  No work will take place on Friday or Saturday nights.

The A835 will remain open throughout the improvements, however to keep everyone safe during the project temporary traffic lights and a 10mph convoy system will be in place during the first four nights. For safety, the B9163 Junctions with Conon Bridge and Corntown will also be closed throughout the first four nights of the project during working hours to project road workers and motorists. Traffic will be diverted along the A835, B9169 and the U2735 Leanaig Crossroads to Corntown Road. Temporary traffic lights and a 30mph speed restriction will be in place during the second week of work with local roads remaining fully open.

Emergency services will be able to pass through the works at all times.

All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours to keep disruption to a minimum although a speed restriction of 30mph will remain in place as traffic will be travelling over a temporary surface.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “This essential surfacing project will upgrade the existing road surface, greatly improving the quality and safety for road users.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption by scheduling the project to avoid working at the weekend, and our teams will do all they can to finish the project as quickly and safely as possible.  We’ll also ensure emergency services will be able to pass through the project at all times.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance and would also encourage them to plan their journeys ahead by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information.”
