A SECTION of Academy Street in Inverness city centre is set to be resurfaced next month.

Work will start on the part of the road from the entrance to the Victorian Market round to the bus stop at Falcon Square on Sunday, October 13 and is expected to run until Thursday, October 17.

A Highland Council spokeswoman said: "These works are likely to result in delays to traffic as the road will be reduced to a single lane which will be controlled by temporary traffic lights. Access for emergency services will be maintained."

The work site will be fenced off, however adjacent footpaths on both sides of the road will be available to pedestrians throughout the works.

The two pedestrian crossings at Station Hotel and Marks & Spencer’s store will be turned off during the works.

All taxi ranks in Academy Street, within the works area, will be relocated to Station Lane at the rear of Inverness railway station during the works.

The spokeswoman added: "Highland Council apologises for any inconvenience during the works which will however result in a new and improved road surface on Academy Street."
