ROADWORKS which have sparked road closures in the Crown and Hill districts of Inverness are set to run well into May following delays.

Engineers from Cityfibre are currently installing fibre optic cable in the neighbourhoods as part of the roll-out of the 5G network locally.

This has resulted in a number of temporary road closures, which were originally due to finish by 6pm on Friday.

But they have now been extended by more than a fortnight, to 6pm on Saturday, May 15, after the installation proved to be "slower than expected".

"The closures will be implemented when appropriate signs and barriers are in place, and local residents will be notified by post," a spokesperson for Highland Council said.
