Overnight resurfacing works will be carried out on a major north-east road next week, with a 10mph convoy in place.
A section of the A96 Aberdeen to Inverness road at Coachford, south of Keith, will be resurfaced.
Work begins on Wednesday and is expected to take the team six nights, excluding Saturday. They’ll be carrying out the project from 7.30pm-6.30am to minimise disruption.
Motorists will need to follow a 10mph convoy system during this time.
Ian Stewart, Bear Scotland’s north-east representative, said: “This project will help address defects in the road surface on this section of the A96 near Keith, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.
“The traffic management is essential for everyone’s safety however we’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists as much as possible during the project, including carrying out the work overnight and removing all traffic management during the daytime.
“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out this essential surfacing work on the A96.”
Meanwhile, work will also be carried out on the A96 west of Forres at the Darnaway junction. The resurfacing work will be carried out on two nights from Monday and again, a 10mph convoy will be in operation.
