B851 resurfacing works require temporary road closure
Motorists are being advised by The Highland Council that there will be part-day road closures of the B851 at Inverarnie Village (south of Inverness) during Monday 13th July to Friday 17th July between 0900 to 1700 each day.
The five part-day road closures are required to carry out essential carriageway resurfacing works. The surfacing plant machinery and site constraints require a road closure to ensure safe working practices.
This work is from the B851/B861 Junction to Dalvourn, is part of the B851 Inverarnie Village Improvement Scheme works and is required to ensure safety for the public and workforce. This is the previously planned work cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
A local diversion for Light Vehicles Only will be in place using the Brin – Dunlichity - Balnafoich Road, during these times.
Advance notification signs advising the public of this closure will be erected this week w/c 29th June giving advance notice of the works.
Emergency vehicle access will be maintained and service buses, refuse collections and local access for residents living within the Closure extents will be managed through the works under the supervision of the contractor. Pedestrians and cyclist access will also be provided access through the works via the new shared-use path under the supervision of the Contractor, with physical distancing measures in place. The cooperation of the public in maintaining physical distancing when travelling through the site is requested.
Highland Council apologise for any inconvenience.
