Motorists are being warned about roadworks on the A9 by Tomatin due to archaeological investigations as part of preparations for dualling the road.

Transport Scotland is advising road users to drive with care with signals being located between the A9 junction with General Wade’s Military Road and the Lynebeg junction.

A spokesperson for the roads agency said: "The works will involve both invasive and non-invasive investigations including trial trenching and land surveys.

"To ensure the safety of road users and operatives whilst we undertake these essential works, temporary traffic signals will be in place on the A9 carriageway near Moy from next Monday (March 21) for approximately three weeks."

"These works are part of preparatory works ahead of the A9 dualling Tomatin to Moy project."

The temporary traffic signals will be in operation between 8am and 5pm Monday to Thursday, and 8am to 12.30pm on Friday.

A temporary 30 mph speed restriction will also be in place to ensure the safe movement of road users through the works.

Other measures such as short term lay-by closures may also be in place throughout March and April as works are under way.
