Improvement works on the A835 at Rogie Falls will soon road re-surfacing accompanied by convey traffic management.

The £135,000 investment by Transport Scotland will see improvements to just over a kilometre of the A835 near Rogie Falls, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

Resurfacing is due to start on Thursday 1 December and will take up to a week to complete. The improvement works are scheduled to take place between 7am and 7pm each day, with no works planned over the weekend.

The A835 will remain open throughout the improvements, however a 10mph convoy system of traffic management will be in place to allow the works to be carried out safely for the protection of the motorists as well as road workers. The convoy system will be removed outside of working hours however a temporary speed restriction of 30mph will remain as traffic will be running on a temporary surface.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West representative, said: “These essential works will improve the road surface at this section of the A835, benefiting road users for years to come.

“Our teams will look to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible, however we would encourage motorists to plan their journeys ahead by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date information.”
