CONCRETE repairs on a bridge on the key A835 trunk route running through Ross-shire will cause some delays.

BEAR Scotland, on behalf of Transport Scotland, is set to start what is described as “essential” concrete repair works on the A835 at Inchbae bridge.

The repair work is scheduled to start on July 8 and is expected to take six weeks.

Throughout the duration of the works, the A835 at Inchbae will have temporary traffic lights to give safe access to allow BEAR Scotland to carry out crucial repairs.

BEAR Scotland says it has been working with all relevant stakeholders to inform them of the project and share information about the traffic management arrangements that will be in place.

Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s north west representative, said: “It’s essential to undertake the repairs at this time to avoid further deterioration and avoid more disruption from any future extensive repair works.

“We thank local residents and road users for their patience. Our priority is to get the road fully open again as soon as possible, while ensuring the safety of those on site.”

Real time journey information is available from Traffic Scotland on www.traffic.gov.scot, or X at @trafficscotland.
