The project is scheduled to take place over 10 days, from Monday to Friday 18-29 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 Friday March 29, subject to weather conditions.

There will be a lane closure with a 10mph 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 road workers 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.
