So far, new safety barriers have been installed on the approaches to the Skiach Junction (B9176), and teams will now move on to the installation process within the junction area itself.

New £30,000 road safety project on A9 at Skiach

·       Works start Monday 22 June for approximately two weeks

·       Strict physical distancing protocols in place for safety

 

 

An essential road safety project on the A9 approaches to Skiach Junction (B9176) in Easter Ross is set to get underway from next week.

The project will involve teams installing new safety barriers as well as upgrading existing barriers to modern standards in order to better protect motorists.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, temporary traffic lights and a 30mph speed limit will be in place throughout the duration of the project.

Further safety improvements will take place in the coming months which will see teams install new road signs at the Skiach Junction.

Strict physical distancing protocols will be in place to ensure all site personnel remain safe once the project gets underway. 

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “Road safety is a top priority at BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland, and this scheme on the A9 at Skiach is part of our commitment to improving road safety on the trunk road network, ensuring it remains safe and reliable.

“We’ve arranged for these works to take place whilst emerging from the Covid-19 lockdown, when traffic flows are lower, however our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and as safely as possible.”
