Temporary Traffic Lights Scrabster Harbour

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Saturday November 25 2017

Temporary traffic lights have been added to the A9 near Scrabster Harbour after slope debris reached the fence next to the road.

Temporary traffic lights have been set up on the A9 near Scrabster Harbour after debris from a slope above the trunk road reached the fence next to the carriageway.

While no debris reached the A9, the temporary traffic lights have been added to the road as a precaution until the slope can be assessed by geotechnical specialists.

A temporary barrier will also be installed on the road as a precautionary measure.

Around 50 tonnes of debris is thought to have moved on the slope.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North-West Representative said:

“Safety is a top priority so we’ve added the temporary traffic signals and temporary barrier to the road as a precaution while teams assess the slope next to the road.

“We will do all we can to keep disruption to a minimum and keep all relevant stakeholders informed of any progress. 

“We encourage road users to plan ahead by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information.”
