A section of the A95 at the Granish junction is to undergo surfacing improvements worth £210,000 with work set to get under way next week.

Road bosses have said the improvements will address defects in the carriageway surface on the so-called whisky road near Aviemore.

The roadworks are scheduled to start this Tuesday (January 11) with repairs planned to take place over four nights.

The improvements will be carried out between 7.30pm and 6.30am, with surfacing due to be completed by early next Saturday (January 15).

There will be a lane closure with a 10mph convoy system in place during working hours.

All traffic management is expected to be removed outwith working hours.

Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “This surfacing project near Aviemore has been designed to improve the general condition and safety of this section of the A95 for motorists.

“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of both roadworkers and motorists.

"Regrettably there will be some delays but our teams will do all they can to complete the scheme as safely and quickly as possible.

“We thank motorists for the patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A95. We encourage them to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
