The first of nine new bridges on a popular Highland tourist route has been completed as part of a £10million bridge replacement scheme.
The A830 Road to the Isles between Fort William and Mallaig is also due to undergo further improvements starting next week.
Work on the new Dearg Bridge, west of Glenfinnan, began in July of last year, it was opened to traffic in late December and the final reinstatement of the verge was completed last week.
Stone recovered from the old bridge was used in the new structure to help it blend in with its surroundings and the new bridge is expected to last at least 120 years.
On Monday, work is due to start on a £251,000 resurfacing project on a 1.3-mile section of the road east of Callop, approximately eight miles east of the new bridge and it is expected to take two weeks to complete.
It will be carried out between 7am and 7pm each day from Monday to Friday with no works planned at weekends.
Temporary traffic lights and a 10mph convoy system will be in operation while the work is undertaken.
Traffic management will be removed outwith working hours, but a 30mph speed restriction will remain in place.
Bear Scotland’s operating company representative for the north west, Eddie Ross, said: “These essential works to the east of Callop will improve the existing road surface, creating a smoother and safer drive for road users on this section of the A830.
“Some delays are likely during the works and we would therefore encourage motorists to plan their journey ahead, allowing some extra time.”
He added that Dearg Bridge had been designed to be low maintenance, which was good news for both locals and tourists.
The next two bridge replacements at Utha and Garbh Bridges, two and five miles west of Glenfinnan respectively, are due to start in the spring.
Mr Ross said these works would be carried out concurrently and needed to be completed during the summer to prevent disruption to the salmon spawning season.
The temporary bridge structure from the Dearg Bridge replacement will be reused and similar traffic management arrangements will be in place.
