THE public is being warned of hold-ups and inconvenience as Elgin’s £86 million flood scheme moves further into the town centre.
The team behind the project said it is about to become "much more visible" as it moves into more populated areas.
The bulk of the work so far has taken place on the stretch of the River Lossie downstream of Elgin, leading to less widespread disruption.
Project manager Peter Haslam said: "Until now the emphasis has been on downstream areas and on longer duration works at Pansport and around the Mansion House Hotel.
"But now we are ready to progress with further embankment work which will see activity in areas of the town which are much more visible to the public.
"While a certain amount of disruption is inevitable, this will be kept to a minimum and I would remind residents of the importance of this critical work."
