Night time road closures will take place next week to enable work to take place on the A9 at Inshes and the slip roads.

Essential road marking improvements on the A9 dual carriageway and single carriageway between the Inshes junction southbound slips and B9006 Culloden Road will get under way on Monday at 7pm for five nights.

It will involve replacing all the white lines and studs for 800m of the A9 dual carriageway including the southbound Inshes Junction off and on slips to the B9006 Culloden Road, creating a safer journeys for motorists with highly reflective markings and studs.

All road marking improvements within these sections will be completed by 6am on Saturday November 25.

During the work, between 7pm and 6am, the A9 Inshes Junction southbound slips (exiting/entering the dual section) and the small section of road leading to the B9006 Culloden Road will be subject to night time road closures.

Information is available on www.traffic.gov.scot, Twitter @trafficscotland or on the mobile site, my.trafficscotland.org.

A southbound lane one closure will also be installed on the A9 past the Inshes Junction southbound slips.

Signed diversion routes will be in place to guide motorists around the closures to continue their journey.

For residents within the site extents, access will be maintained from the Culloden Road junction where there will be a holding zone so that they can be safely escorted through the work.

Residents approaching from the A9 will be diverted to the Milton of Leys junction and along the B9177 to Culloden Road.

Outwith the working hours, the traffic restrictions will be removed. Motorists should be aware that road markings may not always be in place.

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

Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s north west representative said the road marking improvements on the A9 and slip roads would help address defects and greatly improve the safety 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," he said.

"We encourage motorists to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date travel information as these works may be impacted by weather."
