Motorists are being advised of a temporary road closure of a section of Temple Crescent, in the Hilton area of Inverness which is to allow Scottish Water works to take place.
The closure comes into effect today and will only apply between the hours of 9:30am and 3:30pm.
The closure is in the interest of public safety while contractors working on behalf of Scottish Water carry out maintenance to their apparatus located within the public road.
The section of Temple Crescent closed is at its junction with the B861 Culduthel Road to its junction with Hilton Avenue.
Local residents in Tain came out in force this week to take part in the Mansfield Estate Big Clean Up Day which brought together volunteers, employees from the Tain Co-op and council staff to work side by side to spruce up the area.
Skips were provided and were soon filled with unwanted items from homes and gardens while other volunteers tackled the weeds along the footpaths, collected litter and painted the communal bin stores.
Sandra Grant, Chair of the Residents Group and Tain Co-operative Community Champion did a great job rallying volunteers and at the end of a busy day said: “A big thanks to everyone who turned up to help and for the council on backing our community’s tidy-up scheme. Many hands make light work and it was great to see people pulling together. With the bins emptied, weeds removed, a lick of paint and gardens emptied the whole area looks a lot better. We worked hard to get the new playpark opened last year so it’s good that the surrounding area now looks better and somewhere people will want to spend time in.”
