B862 Errogie Bend (Smithy Cottage) – progress update

Progress update from The Highland Council;

Errogie Bend works are progressing well with traffic now moved onto the new section of road under traffic management.  This allows for BT diversion works along the length of the old road to be completed.  Over the next couple of weeks works will consist of finishing kerbing, path works, carriageway iron works, base course surfacing of passing places and drainage completion.

All of this work will continue under traffic management for the safety of the public and the site personnel given the space constraints on site and tight road width available.  RJ McLeod Contractors will seek to minimise delays to residents and other road users at all times.

Some key dates to note;

  • RJ McLeod Contractors will be on holiday for 1 week, finishing at approximately 3pm on Friday 25th March, returning to work on Monday 4th April
  • Complete closure of the road for final surfacing is scheduled for Wednesday 20th April and Thursday 21st April.  Typically this will be approximately 08:30 – 16:00 to coincide with school transport, but will be confirmed nearer the time following consultation with the schools and transport companies.
  • It is planned that all works will be completed by Friday 29th April.

Separate timetables and updates will be provided by The Highland Council for the other B851/B862 improvements currently under construction.

The Highland Council and RJ McLeod Contractors have expressed their appreciation of residents and road users patience during these essential work and apologise for any delays of inconvenience caused.
