A section of the A82 Inverness to Fort William road will be closed overnight next week as the Inverness West Link Stage 2 project moves forward.
The stretch between the General Booth road junction with the A82 and the shared access to the Beefeater and Premier Inn Hotel will be closed from 7pm on Monday, February 10 to 6am on Tuesday, February 11.
A signed diversion will be in place for all vehicles except for site vehicles, service buses and emergency services, for which access will be maintained. Pedestrian access will not be affected by the closure.
Once the section of work is complete the A82 will reopen to cars and light goods vehicles which will flow in two-way traffic to the south of the partially-completed roundabout.
Due to the restricted lane widths there will be a 10mph speed limit and a 7.5 tonne weight restriction on the A82 between the roundabout to the East of Tomnahurich swing bridge and the junction with General Booth Road.
There will be a signed diversion for HGVs in place at this time. This HGV diversion is likely to be in place for a period of six weeks which will allow for the completion of the new roundabout on the A82.
Access will still be permitted for HGVs delivering to the West Link Project and local businesses; for the emergency services, road maintenance vehicles and service buses.
A spokeswoman for the local authority said: “The Highland Council and their contractor, R J McLeod Ltd would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience experienced as a result of this necessary work.”
