MOTORISTS in Inverness are being warned of delays on the busy A9 Raigmore interchange roundabout as roadworks get under way.

The two-week program of work on the trunk road starts at 10pm on Sunday, September 16.

With a Transport Scotland investment of £186,000, the works involve essential road maintenance and improved road marking layout at the Raigmore interchange roundabout and northbound dual carriageway slip road. In addition, high friction surfacing, signing and lining works will be carried out.

The works will be carried out during the night over a two week period between Sundays to Fridays each week, and between the hours of 10pm and 6am each night. The works will commence on Sunday and end on Friday, September 28 at 6am.

To ensure the safety of the workforce and road users alike, temporary traffic signals will be in place and there will be a closure on the A9 northbound slip road; for which a diversion will be in place.

The works will be supervised by Scotland Transerv on behalf of Transport Scotland and should improve lane discipline at this location.

A spokesperson said: "We continue to be grateful to the public for their patience and we will make every effort to ensure that any delays are kept to a minimum.

"Motorists should allow extra time for their journeys and pay attention to any advisory signs which will be in place throughout the works."
