A890 Stromeferry By-pass

Following the recent landslip and road closure on the A890 Stromeferry By-pass between Ardnarff and Attadale, the road is currently open between the hours of 07.00 and 19.00 under traffic management.  This arrangement will continue until further notice.

A geotechnical report is expected next week which will confirm what further stabilisation work will be required. Once a specialist contractor is engaged, an update on expected time-scales will be provided.

Additional signs have been put in place to advise motorists of the periods of closure and the Public is advised to check with Traffic Scotland for information.

Emergency services in the South West Ross area remain unaffected by the road closure.

The diversion route whilst the road is closed overnight is A890 Strathcarron to Achnasheen; A832 Achnasheen to Garve; A835 Garve to Tore Roundabout; A9 Tore to Inverness; A82 Inverness to Invermoriston; A887 / A87 Invermoriston to Auchtertyre and vice versa with a total diversion 133 miles.

Rail services on the Inverness – Kyle of Lochalsh line are now back to normal timetables and for further updates please see the ScotRail website - http://www.journeycheck.com/firstscotrail/
