Essential maintenance works worth £50,000 are to start on the A95 Spey Bridge this week.
The work will involve resurfacing the bridge and replacing some of the bridge components at both the north and south ends in both lanes.
The first phase of work will start and end on Thursday. Joint replacement works and other minor maintenance will then take place the following week across four days between April 9 and 12.
All works will be carried out from 7am to 7pm.
Built in 1931, the historic Spey Bridge is a Grade B-listed structure. The project will help ensure the bridge continues to operate safely for road users for years to come.
To keep roadworkers as well as road users safe, temporary traffic lights will be in place during the five days of the project. A convoy system will be used during the surfacing works to keep teams safe when operations are close to the centre line.
Andy Thompson, Bear Scotland’s north-east representative said: “These essential maintenance works on Spey Bridge will help ensure that the structure continues to operate safely for all motorists and continue to function to the highest standard.
“The traffic management is essential to keep everyone safe during these works.
“To minimise the impact to road users we have worked closely with our subcontractors to condense the construction programme as much as possible.
“We’ve also take steps to avoid working over the weekend to limit any impact to road users.
“We encourage all road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website before they travel and allowing some extra time to reach their destination.”
