From Sunday 16 two-way traffic lights with convoys are set to take over on the A9 just north of Drumochter.

BEAR Scotland has confirmed that traffic on the A9 single carriageway just north of the Drumochter Duals will be controlled by temporary traffic management for a total of nine nights until Saturday, June 29 between 7pm and 6am.

During the works, the A9 single carriageway north of the Drumochter Duals will be subject to a traffic management system of temporary two-way traffic lights with convoy. A reduced speed limit of 10mph will also be set-up on the approach to the site and traffic will be guided through the works by the convoy vehicle.

During non-working hours, the temporary traffic management measures will be lifted.

Throughout the day, a 30mph speed limit will be in effect as a temporary surface and ramps will be in use.

Access through the works site for emergency services will be maintained at all times.

Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s north west representative said: “This crucial surfacing project along the A9 will fix existing defects and significantly enhance the driving experience for all motorists.

“Our teams are committed to executing these works quickly and with safety as our top priority. We extend our gratitude to the local community and road users for their patience while we complete the improvements.”

To minimise delays, motorists should plan their journeys in advance by consulting the Traffic Scotland website for real-time travel updates.

Real time journey information is available from Traffic Scotland on www.traffic.gov.scot, Twitter @trafficscotland or on the mobile site my.trafficscotland.org
