Community discussions have taken place over planned road closures and traffic management on the A890 at Stromeferry.

Officers from Highland Council met with community representatives at Achmore to discuss arrangements for the next phase of rock stabilisation works due to get underway on September 9.

The meeting followed on from a public drop-in information session held in Lochcarron in April, and earlier discussions that have taken place with community councils.

This phase of works, which are due to last eight weeks, form part of the councils on-going maintenance programme for the rock slope and involves replacing sections of the existing rock protection in areas identified during survey work carried out last year.

Unlike the works carried out in 2018, only night time closures of the route will be required as during the day traffic management on the existing road will be in place.

However there will be one weekend closure from Friday night until Monday morning, over the weekend of September 13 -16.

The nightly closures, from 10pm to 7am, will start on the September 9 and continue until November 8.

From 7am to 10pm there will be no weight restrictions on the current road, making the A890 route suitable for all vehicles travelling during the day.

Details of the traffic management arrangements during these works are now available on The Highland Council’s website –
