A BEAR Scotland press release states:
Overnight resurfacing improvements will be carried out on the A96 Aberdeen to Inverness Trunk Road to the east of Nairn. The £210,000 investment by Transport Scotland will ensure that the A96 continues to operate safely for years to come.
The improvements will resurface 750m of both lanes of the carriageway between the new Balmakeith Industrial Estate Roundabout eastwards towards Auldearn. This section of the A96 is used by around 13,975 vehicles every day and it now requires maintenance and resurfacing.
The works will begin on Monday 19 October and are programmed to last for four nights. The improvements will take place each night at 7.30pm and will be completed by 6.30am the following morning.
For the safety of roadworkers and motorists, the improvements will be carried out using a 10mph convoy system of traffic management during working hours.
Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “We’ve planned these works to take place overnight to minimise disruption to motorists as much as possible.
“We would however encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking Traffic Scotland for up to date information.”
