Work gets underway on Speyside's 'whisky road'
MOTORISTS driving into Speyside from the south are being warned of delays as resurfacing works take place.
A convoy system will be in place on the A95 at Cromdale from today as a £120,000 resurfacing project gets underway.
The work is scheduled to take four days and is taking place to address defects in the road and create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.
To ensure the safety of roadworkers as well as motorists, temporary traffic lights and a 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours.
All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours.
Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north-east representative, said: "These £120,000 surfacing improvements near Cromdale have been designed to improve the general condition and safety of this section of the A95 for motorists.
"The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of both roadworkers and motorists. We’ve planned the project to avoid working at the weekend to reduce any disruption to road users as much as possible.
"We thank motorists for the patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A95. We encourage them to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information and allow some extra time to reach their destination."
Work will take place between 7.30am and 5.30pm each day, with surfacing due to be completed by 5.30pm on Thursday.
