Improvements underway on the National Cycle Network Route seven through Drumochter

Cycle route improvements.
Cycle route improvements.

A new £280,000 surfacing project on the four-mile National Cycle Network Route seven (NCN7) between The Wade Stone and Dalnaspidal is underway this week.

Work on creating a smoother and safer journey for people who choose active travel is expected to run for four weeks between 7am and 7pm.

There will be no work taking place at the weekends.

The upgrades follow on from a surfacing project carried out on sections of the route last year, which runs parallel to the A9 through Drumochter.

The cycle track will be temporarily closed between the scheme extents during the project.

Information boards will be situated at closure points advising cyclists and walkers of the next available opportunity to re-join the cycle track.

During this time, cyclists and walkers wishing to travel between The Wade Stone and Dalnaspidal will be required to use an alternative route.

BEAR Scotland are providing a shuttle service between closure points for all cycle track users who don’t want to travel on A9 trunk road between 7am and 7pm.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “The £280,000 investment from Transport Scotland will allow our teams to carry out this essential resurfacing project at this section of Route 7 of the National Cycle Network, greatly improving the condition and safety of the route in this area.”
