A890 Stromeferry Bypass reopens overnight

Slope stabilisation works on the A890 Stromeferry Bypass have now been completed sufficiently to allow the road to reopen overnight.

With effect from today (Friday 14 November 2014), the road will be opened overnight.  The road had been closed every night between 7pm and 7am following a landslip on 28 October.

A contractor has been carrying out work to stabilise the slope since Monday 10 November and this has now reached a stage where the precautionary night closures are no longer considered necessary.

Stabilisation work will be continuing for another 2 to 3 weeks.  The road will remain open throughout the remaining period of the works but traffic management will be in place to allow the works to progress safely.  Drivers should expect delays between 8am and 6pm on the affected section of road (A890 between Ardnarff and Attadale).
