Motorists are being warned to face delays on the A9 during resurfacing works at one of its highest sections.
Work will begin later this week over a 4000ft section close to the famous German soldier’s head at Slochd on the Inverness to Perth road.
The resurfacing will be carried out overnight between 7pm and 7am when motorists will face a 10mph convoy system.
This will be controlled by temporary traffic lights which will be removed during the day.
But a 30mph limit will be in place during the day because vehicles will be running on a temporary road surface.
No work is scheduled to take place on Friday or Saturday nights and the project is scheduled to take six days.
The work will be carried out by Bear Scotland after a £380,000 investment by Transport Scotland.
Eddie Ross, Bear Scotland’s north west representative, said: “These essential resurfacing works will give a much improved road surface and create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.
“To minimise disruption to road users we are carrying out the resurfacing at night and avoiding working on the busier Friday or Saturday nights.
“We’d encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information and leaving a little extra time to reach their destination.”
