Work to improve a notorious section of the A9 Perth to Inverness road will be carried out later this month.
Bear Scotland will focus on the Newtonmore/Ralia junction, south of Kingussie, from September 18.
Work – which includes resurfacing and safety enhancements- will be carried out overnight, with a traffic convoy in place from 7pm until 6am for nine nights.
The work is due to last until September 29, with no work on the Friday and Saturday in between.
Ian Stewart, Bear Scotland’s north-west representative, said: “This crucial surfacing project along the A9 will fix existing defects and significantly enhance the driving experience for all motorists.
“Our teams are committed to executing these works quickly and with safety as our top priority.
“We extend our gratitude to the local community and road users for their patience while we complete the improvements.”
Notorious section of the A9
The A9 at Ralia is a notorious accident blackspot.
It remains a single-carriageway and has been the site of several collisions this year alone.
In July, four people were taken to Raigmore Hospital following a two-car collision near Ralia.
This was the same day another crash just 12 miles north of Ralia, left two people in the hospital.
Local residents are frustrated over the slow progress of the A9 dualling project, which is now significantly behind schedule.
The section where Ralia is located is one of the largest sections of the single carriageway that remains to be dualled between Crubenmore and Kincraig.
Transport Scotland has still to announce when this 10-mile stretch of the A9 is likely to be dualled.
