Works start Tuesday 11 January for four nights


A section of the A95 at the Granish junction is to benefit from surfacing improvements worth £210,000 with work set to get underway on Tuesday 11 January at 7.30pm.

The improvements will address defects in the road surface on the A95 near Aviemore, creating a safer and smoother road surface for motorists.

The project is expected to get underway on Tuesday 11 January and is planned to take place over four nights. The improvements will be carried out between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night, with surfacing due to be completed by 6.30am on Saturday 15 January.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers as well as motorists, a lane closure with a 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours. All traffic management is expected to be removed outwith working hours.

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

Commenting on the improvements, Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “This surfacing project near Aviemore has been designed to improve the general condition and safety of this section of the A95 for motorists.

“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of both roadworkers and motorists. Regrettably there will be some delays but our teams will do all they can to complete the scheme as safely and quickly as possible.

“We thank motorists for the patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A95. We encourage them to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
