Overnight closures will be imposed on Banavie Swing Bridge on the A830 and the A82 Laggan Swing Bridge in the coming weeks to facilitate a £260,000 programme of improvements.
Overnight closures will be imposed on Banavie Swing Bridge on the A830 and the A82 Laggan Swing Bridge in the coming weeks to facilitate a £260,000 programme of improvements.

Overnight work has begun on the A9 through Golspie in an effort to reduce the road noise experienced by residents.

The £105,000 investment by Transport Scotland will see improvements to a half a kilometre stretch, creating a safer and smoother journey for motorists.

Bear Scotland hopes the work will also succeed in reducing the audible impact from vehicles on surrounding residential area.

The overnight improvements got underway last night are expected to be completed by Monday.

The project will be carried out between 7pm and 7am each night. No work is programmed for Friday or Saturday night.

To keep roadworkers as well as road users safe during the project, a 10mph convoy traffic management system will be in place during working hours.

Traffic management will be removed outwith working hours, though a 30mph speed limit will be in place as traffic will be travelling over a temporary surface.

Access through the works site for emergency services will be maintained at all times.

Bear Scotland’s Eddie Ross said. “This £105,000 surfacing project will greatly improve the road surface on this section of the A9, creating a safer and smoother journey for motorists.

“We have taken steps to help minimise disruption for road users as much as possible during the project, including carrying out the improvements overnight.

“The traffic management in place is essential for ensuring the safety of road workers and road users, but our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.”
