Two weeks of work to resurface a section of the A96 just west of Keith will begin on Tuesday.

The work at Crooks Mill Junction near Keith is set to get underway tomorrow between 7.30pm and 6.30am.

It is expected to be completed by 6.30am on Tuesday, July 21.

A 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours.

Andy Thompson from BEAR Scotland said: “This project follows on from surfacing improvements being carried out on the A96 Crooks Mill Junction and will involve the installation of high-friction surfacing on a series of bends, ensuring this location remains a safe and reliable route for years to come.

"We’ve changed our ways of working in response to the Covid-19 pandemic to ensure all staff and the local community are kept safe at all times, and all personnel will be subject to strict physical distancing protocols in line with Scottish Guidance.

"Thorough risk assessments have been developed and cleansing stations have been implemented on site to ensure all staff remain safe.

"The traffic management is essential for ensuring the safety of roadworkers and motorists, and teams will do all they can to complete this project as safely and quickly as possible.

"We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential works on the A96."
