City road repair work starts next week
Leiths (Scotland) Ltd have been appointed by The Highland Council to carry out resurfacing and carriageway strengthening along a section of General Booth Road in Inverness.
Work from Charleston Academy to its junction with Leachkin Road, including the junction area, will start on Tuesday 15 September and is due to be completed by Monday 5 October.
Temporary traffic management will be in place enabling traffic flows in both directions to be maintained. However, some delays are inevitable, but every effort will be made to keep disruption to traffic to a minimum. Drivers are asked to consider using alternative routes during the works period.
Due to the progressive nature of the works, it will not always be physically possible, or indeed safe, to maintain access to every bus stop and there may be occasions when one, or more, may be inaccessible. If a bus stop needs to be closed off, notices will be erected to notify passengers to use the next available stop.
Once completed, the work will greatly improve the running surface of this section of General Booth Road, which is currently suffering from significant deterioration.
