Essential surfacing improvements will see 125m of road resurfaced on the A9 near Kingussie and a layby resurfaced near Aviemore, creating a smoother and safer road for motorists.

The improvements are set to commence on Monday 27 March 2023 and will take four nights to complete. These works will take place between 19:00 and 06:00 each night, with surfacing and lining due to be completed by 06:00 on Friday 31 March 2023.

To ensure the safety of road workers and motorists, the works will be undertaken under 10mph convoy with lane closures and temporary traffic lights during working hours.

The road will be open outwith working hours to keep disruption to a minimum, with access for emergency services through the works site maintained at all times.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “These surfacing projects on the A9 will help address defects and reduce the need for ongoing maintenance. The projects will also improve the road surface, creating a smoother ride for road users.

Traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of both roadworkers and motorists. Regrettably there will be some delays, but our teams will do all they can to complete the schemes as safely and quickly as possible, and we thank the local community and road users for their patience in advance while we complete these projects. We encourage motorists to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date travel information.”
