Project to begin on Sunday 26 June for five nights

  • Overnight road closures in place for safety between 8pm and 6am

  • Amnesties provided at 9pm, 10pm, 11pm, midnight, 2am and 4am



Surfacing improvements covering two locations on the A835 between Rogie and north of Tarvie Café are set to get underway from 8pm on Sunday 26 June.

The programme of improvements will see almost 1km of the A835 resurfaced, creating a smoother and safer road for motorists.

The project is scheduled to begin on Sunday 26 June and is expected to take five nights to complete. The improvements will take place between 8pm and 6am each night, with all works expected to be completed by 6am on Friday 1 July, subject to favourable weather conditions.

The works are programmed to take place as follows:


  • A835 Rogie to Tarvie – Sunday 26 June to Tuesday 28 June (three nights), 8pm to 6am.
  • A835 north of Tarvie Café – Wednesday 29 June to Thursday 30 June (two nights), 8pm to 6am.


Due to the narrow carriageway widths along sections of  the A835, the improvements will be undertaken using a full overnight road closure to ensure the safety of our workforce and road users. Amnesty periods when work is suspended will be provided at 9pm, 10pm, 11pm, midnight, 2am and 4am to allow vehicles to be escorted through the site safely under a 10mph convoy system. The A835 will be open outwith working hours; however, a speed restriction of 30mph will remain in place as traffic will be running over a temporary surface.

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

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “This surfacing project across these two sections of the A835 will help address defects and greatly improve the surface for road users.

“Due to the narrow widths of the road at these locations the overnight closures are essential in providing a safe working area for the workforce and road users. We’ve taken steps to limit the overall impact of the project by carrying out the work overnight, however our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as they can.

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