Drivers warned of resurfacing work on A9 near Inverness

Drivers on the A9 south of Inverness have been warned to prepare for three weeks of disruption as upgrade work is carried out.

A 2,000ft section of the north’s busiest road is to be resurfaced about eight miles south of the Highland capital, near Daviot.

The £350,000 scheme is due to get under way from Monday, April 24 and is expected to take three weeks to complete.

Work will take place on weekdays only between 7am and 7pm, with no works scheduled at weekends or on the May Day Bank Holiday on Monday, May 1.

A 10mph convoy traffic management system will be in place during working hours, with a lane closure to remain in place outwith working times.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s north west unit representative, said: “The £350,000 investment from Transport Scotland will allow our teams to carry out these essential resurfacing works at this section of the A9, greatly improving the condition and safety of the route in this area.

“We’ve taken steps to limit the impact of these works by avoiding working at the weekend and the May Day Bank Holiday, and our teams will do all they can to ensure that we complete the improvements to the A9 as quickly as possible.

“We thank motorists in advance for their patience whilst we carry out these surfacing improvements, and would encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information and to allow extra time for travel.”
