£50,000 roadworks planned at roundabouts

Transport Scotland logoResurfacing improvements worth more than £50,000 are to be carried out on the A96 Greshop and Findhorn Roundabouts, Forres. 

The project will involve resurfacing the entire carriageway of the two roundabouts and renewal of the road markings. The investment from Transport Scotland will address any defects in the road surface, including potholes, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The works will begin next Sunday, for four nights, taking place each evening from 7.30pm until 6.30am the following morning.  

To keep road workers and the travelling public safe during the improvements temporary traffic lights will be in operation with side roads closed during working hours.   

The traffic management will be lifted outside of working hours during the daytime, however a speed limit of 30mph will be in place as traffic will be running over a temporary road surface. 

The Findhorn roundabout works will require a closure at Victoria Road and the B9011 to Kinloss where a diversion will be made available via Victoria Road, High Street and Market Street and the B9010 Forres to Kinloss and the C6e Kinloss to Scotsburn Road. 

As part of works at the Greshop roundabout, Nairn Road will be closed with traffic diverted through Market Street to the A96. 

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: "The investment from Transport Scotland will remove defects in these roundabouts on the A96 to create a safer, smoother and improved road surface for road users. 

"We’ve scheduled the works to take place overnight to minimise disruption. Our teams will look to do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.

 "We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information and leave extra time to complete their journey and follow the diversions."
