ESSENTIAL maintenance to a swing bridge on a major Highland route is being extended because bad weather has delayed work.
The work at Laggan Swing Bridge on the A82 has been extended by a further four nights, BEAR Scotland said.
The road links Inverness and Fort William and extends south to Glasgow.
The overnight closures on the A82 Laggan Swing Bridge will continue for a further four nights, with work expecting to finish by 6am on Friday morning.
The road will be closed overnight from 10pm to 6am with "amnesties" at midnight, 2am and 4am as before.
Alternatively, a signed diversion route is available for road users via the A82, A9 and A86.
The Laggan Bridge resurfacing works have now been rescheduled to begin on Monday, October 19.
The road will remain open overnight during the project with a 10mph convoy system in place to protect road users and roadworkers.
