BEAR Scotland will start £40,000 worth of road safety improvements on the A9 dual carriageway south of Findhorn Bridge by Tomatin from next week.

Transport Scotland’s trunk road operating company will begin the work from next Monday (May 15) which will continue for three weeks, taking place Monday to Friday from 7am to 7pm each week. No works are planned on Saturdays or Sundays.

The project will be completed by 7pm on Friday 9 June but that also depends on the weather.

The scheme will install a new section of wire rope safety fence, along with associated kerbs and road markings, to close a redundant crossover gap in the central reserve.

The second lane will be permanently closed in both directions and a 50mph speed limit will be in place for the duration of the works for the safety of roadworkers and road users.

BEAR Scotland said it has contacted all relevant stakeholders to inform them of the project and share information about the traffic management arrangements that will be in place.

Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “Trunk road safety is paramount at BEAR Scotland and this investment from Transport Scotland will improve safety for all road users at this location on the A9.

“The traffic management required to undertake these works is essential to keep everyone safe, so we encourage all road users to follow any signs or temporary arrangements, especially speed limits, that are put in place.

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and as safely as possible.

"We would like to thank road users in advance for their patience during this project and encourage them to plan ahead by checking Traffic Scotland for up to date journey information and leave some extra time to reach their destination.”

Real time journey information is available from Traffic Scotland on www.traffic.gov.scot or twitter @trafficscotland.
