Harbour Road in Inverness to close temporarily for level crossing improvement work

Region & Route:
Scotland’s Railway: Scotland

Network Rail will carry out vital repairs this weekend to the road surface on the approach to Raigmore level crossing at Harbour Road in Inverness.

The crossing will be closed between 23:45 on Saturday 4 May and 09:50 on Sunday 5 May and then from 23:45 on Sunday 5 May to 04:45 on Monday 6 May while work is ongoing.

Vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians will not be able to use the crossing during that time and will be diverted from Harbour Road via M9/A9, A82 Longman Road, Chapel Street, Academy Street and B865 Millburn Road, and vice versa.

To improve the road surface, which has deteriorated on approach to the level crossing, we will smooth out the existing road surface and install a new tarmac layer.

Stuart Colvin, Infrastructure Maintenance Engineer for Network Rail, said: “The planned work at Raigmore level crossing is essential to maintaining a safe and reliable railway in the area.

“Our thanks go to the community for their patience and understanding while we complete this work.”

Network Rail is working with local stakeholders and The Highland Council to minimise the duration of the closure.

If anyone has any questions in relation to the work, they can call Network Rail’s 24-hr helpline on 03457 11 41 41 or email via our website www.networkrail.co.uk/contactus.
