ROADWORKS will get under way this week on a section of the A95 Aviemore-Keith "whisky road".
The £165,000 improvements, starting on Wednesday, August 11, will address defects in the road surface south of Dalvey, between Tormore and Cromdale.
The work will take place over six days between 8am and 5pm each day, with the project expected to be completed by Wednesday, August 18. No works are programmed to take place on Saturday or Sunday.
A 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours and all traffic management will be removed overnight.
Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s north east representative, said: "This £165,000 investment from Transport Scotland will greatly improve and strengthen this section of the A95, as well as create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.
"The traffic management programmed is essential for ensuring everyone remains safe throughout the project. However, our teams will do everything possible to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.
"We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A95. We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date traffic information and allow some extra time to reach their destination."
