Motorists using the A9 single carriageway starting between the dual section at Drumochter heading south towards the dual section at Killiecrankie are being advised of night time two-way traffic lights that will be in place with a convoy from Monday.
During the daytime, a reduced speed limit along with temporary traffic lights will be set-up and traffic will be guided through the works at 10mph by a convoy vehicle.
The first two weeks of works, employing two-way traffic lights with convoy to allow for road marking and a stud refresh, will take place between Monday December 11 and Friday December 22 from 7pm to 6am on the A9 from Killiecrankie to Drumochter.
This will be followed by a further four weeks of works between Monday January 8 to Saturday February 3, from 7pm to 6am.
Junctions through the scheme will either be controlled manually by an operative or by a third traffic light signal to control traffic joining the A9 within the area of traffic being managed.
Access through the works site for emergency services will be maintained at all times.
Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “These road marking and road stud refresh projects on the A9 will help address defects and greatly improve the safety and visual impact for motorists.
Our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as they can, and we thank the local community and road users for their patience in advance while we complete these projects. We encourage motorists to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date travel information.”
