Major resurfacing works to improve a section of the A96 Forres Bypass will be carried out from Monday for a period of five nights.
These road works are the second phase of a £390,000 resurfacing project that aims to tackle defects on the eastbound carriageway of the bypass.
This project is carrying on from the resurfacing works that occurred on the westbound carriageway a few months ago.
The overnight works get under way on Monday night from 7.30pm until 6.30am and are expected to be completed by Saturday morning.
The eastbound road will be closed throughout the night with a diversion via Nairn Road and the B9011 in place until the road reopens during the daytime.
During this time, access to the Benromach Way and the railway station will still be possible.
Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “The eastbound road closure is necessary to keep everyone safe during the improvements, however we’ve planned this scheme to take place over five nights to limit the overall impact to road users.
“Our teams will do all they can to minimise disruption and complete the project as quickly and safely as possible. We thank motorists for their patience and encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
