A major overnight resurfacing project will resume this week on a section of the A96 Aberdeen to Inverness road.
The second phase of essential surface improvements at the Crooks Mill Junction near Keith in Moray has been announced.
Work will begin tomorrow and will run for two weeks, between 7.30pm and 6.30am.
Bear Scotland, which looks after the nation’s trunk routes, hopes to have the work completed by the morning of Tuesday, July 21.
Local representative Andy Thompson said: “This project follows on from surfacing improvements being carried out on the A96 Crooks Mill Junction and will involve the installation of high-friction surfacing on a series of bends, ensuring this location remains a safe and reliable route for years to come.
“We’ve changed our ways of working in response to the Covid-19 pandemic to ensure all staff and the local community are kept safe at all times, and all personnel will be subject to strict physical distancing protocols in line with Scottish guidance.
“Thorough risk assessments have been developed and cleansing stations have been implemented on site to ensure all staff remain safe.
“The traffic management is essential for ensuring the safety of road workers and motorists, and teams will do all they can to complete this project as safely and quickly as possible.”
A 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours to ensure workers and motorists are safe.
