BEAR Scotland, acting on behalf of Transport Scotland, are planning to carry out essential resurfacing works on a section of the A87 trunk road within Portree to address areas of deteriorated carriageway.

The works are proposed to commence on Monday 29th April to Thursday 2nd May between the hours of 9am and 7pm each day with a single night-shift on Friday 3rd May between 7pm-7am.

The works on Friday night will start at the approach to the A87/A855 Junction and the area outside Portree Filling Station will be resurfaced after 9pm.

To ensure the safety of the workforce and members of the travelling public the carriageway will be subject to a 10mph convoy traffic management system during the above works. Out with the specified working hours, traffic management will be removed.

Access to properties and businesses will be maintained, however, some disruption is inevitable at times due to the nature of the works. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the local community for their patience whilst these essential works are undertaken.
