Roadworks will start on Saturday on the A835 between Tarvie and Rogie.

SPEED restrictions and overnight road closures will be in place on a Ross-shire main artery road this weekend.

Surfacing improvements covering two locations on the A835 between Rogie and north of Tarvie Café are set to get underway from 8pm on Sunday, June 26.

The project will see almost 1km of the A835 resurfaced is expected to take five nights to complete, with improvements taking place between 8pm and 6am each night

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West representative said: “This surfacing project across these two sections of the A835 will help address defects and greatly improve the surface for road users.

“Due to the narrow widths of the road at these locations the overnight closures are essential in providing a safe working area for the workforce and road users. We’ve taken steps to limit the overall impact of the project by carrying out the work overnight, however our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as they can.

“We thank the local community and road users for their patience in advance while we complete these essential maintenance projects. We encourage motorists to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date travel information.”

All works expected to be completed by 6am on Friday July 1, subject to favourable weather conditions.

Due to the narrow carriageway widths along sections of the A835, the improvements will be undertaken using a full overnight road closure to ensure the safety of our workforce and road users. Amnesty periods when work is suspended will be provided at 9pm, 10pm, 11pm, midnight, 2am and 4am to allow vehicles to be escorted through the site safely under a 10mph convoy system. The A835 will be open outwith working hours; however, a speed restriction of 30mph will remain in place as traffic will be running over a temporary surface.

The works are programmed to take place as follows:

  1. A835 Rogie to Tarvie – Sunday June 26 to Tuesday June 28 (three nights), 8pm to 6am.
  2. A835 north of Tarvie Café - Wednesday June 29 to Thursday June 30 (two nights), 8pm to 6am.

Access through the works site for emergency services will be maintained at all times.
