Travellers on the A890 Stromeferry Bypass are advised that maintenance works will take place in July.

The Highland Council has appointed Geo-Rope Ltd to undertake planned maintenance works to the rock face above the A890 Stromeferry Bypass.  Works are programmed to begin on the 10th of July for approximately 8 weeks. 

The works include the de-vegetation and light scaling of rock slopes, adjusting existing passive netting systems, clearance of rock material behind rock netting, installation of wire rope profiling cables, dowels, active and high strength active rock netting.

There are two sections of slope undergoing maintenance both of which are situated approximately 1km west of the avalanche shelter.  The works will require traffic management on the adjacent single track road and the road may require short closures during certain operations but this will be kept to a minimum.  Supervising staff from The Highland Council will be on site during the works.
