  • Works to begin on Monday 18 March.

  • Daytime lane closure with convoy

On behalf of Transport Scotland, BEAR Scotland will be carrying out essential surfacing improvements on the A9 at Inverbrora, immediately south of Brora, with works set to get underway on Monday 18 of March.

The project will see a new surface laid on the carriageway of the A9 at Inverbrora, creating a smoother and safer road for motorists.

The project is scheduled to take place over 10 days, from Monday 18 March to Friday 29 March, between the hours of 7am and 7pm each day with no work on Saturday or Sunday. All surfacing works are anticipated to be complete by 7pm on the Friday 29 of March, 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 outwith 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.”

Real time journey information is available from Traffic Scotland on www.traffic.gov.scot, twitter at @trafficscotland or the new mobile site my.trafficscotland.org.

Materials removed from the existing carriageway will be recycled using SEPA approved methods.
