Four of Scotland’s busiest roads – the A9, A92, A95 and A96 – are set to benefit from a programme of improvement works which start on Friday July 27.
The £75,000 works will involve the retexturing of carriageway surfaces to help improve skid resistance and motorists’ safety.
Work will be carried out across eight nights in total from 7.30pm to 6.30pm in an effort to minimise disruption, but motorists have been urged to plan ahead.
Traffic lights and lane closures will be put in place on all of the routes affected.
The work is due to begin on the A9 southbound approach to the Keir Roundabout at Dunblane on Friday for one night, before similar work will be carried out on the A92 at Kirkcaldy’s Redhouse Roundabout on Saturday July 28.
The following night will see the focus shift to the A92 Tay Bridge Roundabout, before work is done at the A95 Craggan junctions at Grantown-on-Spey, the A96 to A920 staggered junction at Huntly and the A96 Lhanbryde Bypass during the rest of that week.
BEAR Scotland say it will be necessary at times to hold traffic at the traffic signals, although it is expected that this will be for no more than three to four minutes at most.
Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This programme of works will allow us to improve the skid resistance, and in turn, safety, of some of Scotland’s busiest routes. Whilst some disruption is expected, we have planned the works to take place overnight to help minimise this.”
