Overnight roadworks this week will mean temporary closures on the A86 between Kingussie and Laggan.
Essential work begins tonight (MON) to repair two culverts that have partially collapsed. It is scheduled to take five nights and will run from 7pm to 7am.
The first phase is to repair a culvert at Lochan Uvie close to Laggan and the second phase at Gorstean, a mile south of Laggan.
A diversion will operate each night. The repairs are scheduled for completion by 7am on Saturday. (JAN 21)
Those intending to travel north on the A86 should continue on the A82 through Fort Augustus, Invergarry, Invermoriston and Drumnadrochit to Inverness, turn right onto the A9 at Longman Roundabout, Inverness and travel southbound to Kingussie.
They should then turn right onto the A86 at Kingussie and continue to Drumgask, thereafter following permanent signing as normal.
Those heading south on the A86 from the A889 at the junction of the A86/A889 should turn right onto the A86 at Laggan Bridge and continue through Kingussie.
They should then turn left onto the A9 and continue to Inverness, turning left onto the A82 at Longman Roundabout, Inverness, and follow the road through Drumnadrochit, Invermoriston, Invergarry and Fort Augustus to Spean Bridge.
Eddie Ross of maintenance firm Bear Scotland said: “We’ve planned the full repairs to take place overnight to reduce the disruption to motorists as much as possible and our teams will look to complete the repairs as quickly and safely as they can.
“We thank motorists for their patience in advance.”
