Overnight resurfacing on A96 between Grants Garage and town bridge begin tonight - pot holes no more?

Transport Scotland state on their website:

"Overnight resurfacing improvements will be carried out on a stretch of the A96 in Nairn between the Railway Bridge and the River Nairn Bridge in March. The £72,000 investment by Transport Scotland will ensure that the A96 continues to operate safely for years to come. 

The resurfacing will begin on Monday 21 March and is programmed to continue for three nights, between 7.30pm and 6.30am the following morning.

For the safety of motorists as well as road users, a 10mph convoy system of traffic management will be used during the overnight works. This will be lifted outside of working hours, however a temporary speed limit will remain as motorists will be running over a temporary surface.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative said: “These resurfacing improvements will enhance the A96 at this location, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists. 

“We’ve scheduled these resurfacing works to take place overnight to minimise any delays to motorists as much as possible. We would also encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance where possible by checking the Traffic Scotland website for travel information.”

Real-time journey planning information can be obtained by visiting or twitter @trafficscotland. 

Materials removed from the existing carriageway will be recycled using SEPA approved methods. 

The works are being carried out by Breedon on behalf of BEAR Scotland."

Is there any guarantee on the quality of these repairs. It doesn't seem very long since that stretch was done the last time.

Living Right next to the road where its being worked on it might have been nice to have been warned.
