A940 Forres to Grantown road closed at Glenernie Bridge

Strengthening works to the Glenernie Bridge begin this week.

The A940 Forres – Grantown Road will be closed at the Glenernie Bridge for eight weeks from today, Tuesday 8 May, until Monday 2 July. As the local diversion route is unsuitable for HGVs, separate diversions are in place for cars and light commercial vehicles, and for HGVs.

The refurbishment will include vegetation clearance, masonry stitch repairs, picking and pointing, drainage, waterproofing and carriageway resurfacing.

It follows the successful completion of strengthening and refurbishing work on the B9007 Logie Bridge across the River Divie, between Logie Steading and Randolph’s Leap, which was completed a week ahead of schedule.

Diversion for cars and light commercial vehicles:
A940 to junction with A939 Nairn – Grantown Road >> A939 to junction with B9007 Forres – Ferness Road >> B9007 to junction with A940 >> A940.

Diversion for HGVs:
A940 to junction with A939 Nairn – Grantown Road >> A939 to junction with A96 Nairn – Forres Road >> A96 to junction with A940 >> A940.
