Motorists are being warned to expect four days of delays on the A87 Invergarry-Kyle road in Wester Ross because of a £140,000 resurfacing programme.
The work around Eilean Donan Castle and Kintail to Inverinate is due to start today.
Trunk road maintenance company Bear Scotland said the urgent works had been brought forward in its programme because the road surface had deteriorated over the winter.
The first stretch to be resurfaced will be from Kintail Causeway to Inverinate, which is due to be carried out today, with work to the east of Eilean Donan Castle due to start tomorrow and last for three days.
The A87 will remain open throughout the improvements, which will be carried out between 7am-7pm each day, but a 10mph convoy system will be in place at each location.
This will be removed outside of working hours, but a temporary speed restriction of 30mph will remain in place as traffic will be running on a temporary surface.
Bear’s north west representative, Eddie Ross, said: “We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption where possible by scheduling the resurfacing to be completed in four days to avoid working at weekends.”
