Motorists advised of temporary road closures south of Inverness
Motorists are being advised that a series of road closures will take place next month to enable essential resurfacing work to be carried out at Inverarnie south of Inverness.
The road closures take place during Monday April 6 to Friday April 10 between 9am and 4pm each day.
The surfacing plant machinery and site constraints require a road closure to ensure safe working practices.
The work from the B851/B861 junction to Dalvourn, is part of the B851 Inverarnie Village Improvement Scheme works and is required to ensure safety for the public and workforce.
A local diversion for light vehicles only will be in place using the Brin – Dunlichity - Balnafoich Road during these times.
Emergency vehicle access will be maintained and service buses, refuse collections and local access for residents living within the closure extents will be managed through the works under the supervision of the contractor.
Pedestrians and cyclist access will also be provided access through the works via the new shared-use path under the supervision of the contractor.
Highland Council apologises for any inconvenience.
The council has also announced the temporary closure of part of the B851, between Tombreck and Brin to enable resurfacing works.
The closure will only apply between the hours of 9am and 4pm daily from Monday April 6 to Friday April 10.
The B851 Errogie – Strathnairn – Daviot Bridge – Culloden Moor Road will be closed between its junction with the B861 Inverness – Leys – Inverarnie Road and its junction with the C1076 Loch Ashie – Dunlichity – Brin Road.
