BEAR Scotland, working on behalf of Transport Scotland, will be carrying out essential resurfacing works on the A87 Trunk Road, six miles north of Portree. 

The essential carriageway resurfacing works will now commence on Thursday 21st June and are anticipated to be completed by Friday 6th July. The works are to be undertaken between the hours of 7pm and 7am Monday to Friday each night under the road closure, with no works planned at the weekend. Out with these hours traffic management will be removed, however a 30mph speed limit will remain in place, as traffic will be travelling over a temporary road surface.
Unfortunately, due to the restricted road widths at this location we have no option but to close the carriageway in order to ensure the safety of the workforce and members of the travelling public. The A87 will therefore be closed to the north of Kensaleyre over the extent of the works. Hourly amnesties will be in place for local access, while emergency services will be able to pass through at all times.
