A budget of more than £2.7m has been agreed for Ross and Cromarty’s road maintenance programme for 2019/20.
Highland Council says it prioritises the safety of the travelling public and sustainability of the road network.
The winter maintenance budget accounts for £1.1m, which the remainder goes to 14 capital improvement schemes.
The schemes included are based on need following safety and service inspections, input from Ward Members and data from the Scottish Road Maintenance Condition Survey.
Four of the schemes are on the A890 in Lochalsh. Other A road projects include surface dressing to the A862 Station Road–Auction Mart in Dingwall and the A832 at the Fairy Glen on the Black Isle.
Council officials have based the figures on last year’s budget ahead of the council’s 2019/20 budget setting next week.
The council said if the budget is amended, the programme will be reviewed.
Ross and Cromarty area committee chairwoman, councillor Fiona Robertson said: “Given the scale of roads across Ross and Cromarty and the impact of weather related damage, there continues to be a huge demand on our limited resources.
“There will never be enough money for everything we want to do. However, the committee’s decision today means we have a clear plan taking us forward during the coming 12 months.”
Meanwhile the committee also agreed to invest in infrastructure improvements for Dingwall that could see the development of 150 additional houses in the town and a number of traffic improvements.
These include work at the Bridgend Avenue Junction and Docharty Road Junction, traffic signal works at Mart Road Junction, and proposals for walking and cycling improvements.
Traffic management measures also include looking at alternative solutions to the road layout at the Station Road junction.
