Motorists are being warned of overnight closures on a busy Inverness A road starting next week.

Drainage works costing £40,000 will be carried out over 15 nights at the Inshes and Bogbain junctions on the A9.

The work is scheduled to take place between 8pm and 6am each evening from Monday July 11.

Work will be halted on Saturday and Sunday night and the project is due for completion by July 30.

Between Monday July 11 to Saturday July 23 the slip road at the Inshes junction will be closed overnight to protect roadworkers.

Drivers will be able to enter and leave the A9 at the Bogbain junction instead during this time.

From Monday July 25 work will take place for five nights at the Bogbain junction, with motorists advised to use the Inshes junction.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s north west representative, said: “These essential drainage works on the A9 at the Inshes and Bogbain junctions will greatly improve the quality and safety of the road for all users.

“The planned closures are essential to keep roadworkers and motorists safe during the works.

"We have taken steps to minimise disruption by carrying out the works overnight and by removing traffic management outwith working hours.

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