Essential repairs are to be undertaken on the Dalmore Bridge that carries the B817 over the A9 near Alness.

This work to repair impact damage to the bridge beams, which will be carried out over four weeks starting on Monday, is necessary to ensure the bridge continues to operate to a safe standard for years to come. 

For the safety of the workforce and motorists, temporary traffic lights and a 30mph speed limit will be in place continually on both the A9 and local B817 road until the works are completed. 

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Unit representative said: “Safety is of the utmost importance and these essential impact damage repairs to the bridge beams will ensure that the bridge continues to operate to a safe working standard into the future.

“Every effort will be made to complete the work as quickly as possible. Weekend working will help to reduce the overall impact on motorists using the A9 and B817, however we would encourage motorists to plan ahead for their journeys by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information.”
