ROAD works will get underway next week on a major route into Moray.
Essential repairs totalling £25,000 will be carried out to Advie Bridge on the A95 around 10 miles north of Grantown close to the border with Highland.
Work will begin on Monday and is expected to last for three weeks.
The repairs, part of Transport Scotland’s on-going investment in the trunk road network, will include improvements to the bridge abutment drainage with new weep pipes installed to the underside and re-pointing of masonry.
This will be done using an underbridge inspection vehicle and a temporary scaffold.
For safety of the workforce and public, traffic lights will be in place for the duration of these works.
Andy Thompson, from BEAR Scotland’s north east unit, said: "This essential bridge maintenance project will help to ensure that this section of the A95 trunk road will continue to operate safely and effectively for all road users.
"We have planned these works to minimise disruption however some delays are possible."
