Traffic restrictions in place following Scrabster slope failure

Transport Scotland’s term maintenance contractor Bear Scotland has said that lane restrictions have been put in place on the A9 near Scrabster Harbour following a landslip.

Bear said that 50t of debris from the slope had not reached the carriageway but traffic lights have been put in place until a geotechnical assessment of the slope can be carried out.

A temporary barrier is also being installed at the site as a precautionary measure.

“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,” said Bear Scotland north west representative Eddie Ross.
