Works to begin on Monday 26 February 2024 for ten days

  • Daytime lane closure with convoy


On behalf of Transport Scotland, BEAR Scotland will be carrying out essential surfacing improvements on the A9 at Inverbrora, with works set to get underway on Monday 26 of February.

The project will see a new road surface laid at Inverbrora, which is just south of Brora, creating a smoother and safer road for motorists.

The project is scheduled to take place over ten days, from Monday 26 February to Friday 8 March, between the hours of 7am and 7pm with no work at the weekend. All surfacing works are subject to weather conditions.

To protect roadworkers and motorists there will be a lane closure with a 10-mph convoy system in place. The traffic management will be removed out with working hours to keep disruption to a minimum, with a speed restriction of 30mph in place as traffic will be running over a temporary surface.

Consultation has taken place with all relevant stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing improvements to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements.

Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “These maintenance works on the A9 at Inverbrora will help address defects and greatly improve the surface for road users.

“The use of convoy traffic management during working hours is essential to ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists.

“We thank the local community and road users for their patience in advance while we complete this project. We encourage motorists to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date travel information.”
