Road surface improvement works will be carried out on a section of the A9 south of Inverness for 12 days from Monday, with possible delays for traffic management measures in place during working hours.

A section of the A9 south of Daviot will see BEAR Scotland carry out works to improve the road surface on more than 600m.

The project is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 11, and is expected to take 12 days to complete.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “This surfacing project just south of Daviot will greatly improve the quality and safety of this section of the A9.

“The traffic management is necessary to protect roadworkers and road users. We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption as much as possible by avoiding working at the weekends as well as during the Easter bank holidays.

“We thank road users 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.”

To ensure the safety of road users and roadworkers, a 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours. Traffic management will be removed outwith working hours, however a temporary 30mph speed limit will remain in place as traffic will be travelling over a temporary surface.

Works are programmed to take place between 7am and 7pm each day. No works are planned to take place over Easter weekend (Friday 15 to Monday, April 18).

All works are expected to be completed by 7pm on Thursday 28 April, subject to weather favourable conditions.
