Stromeferry Rock Works - September to November 2018
Road to Rail Diversion Operating Timetable (issued 10.08.18)
From 3 September, the A890 will be closed overnight between the two permanent road closure gates at Ardnarff and west of Attadale between 10pm and 7am. The road will have traffic control in operation during the day between 7am and 10pm whilst a road to rail bypass road is installed. The Contractor has been allowed up to two weeks for the installation of the bypass road but may complete this sooner.
The Road will therefore be Open during the day until 17th September when step 2 starts.
Once the road to rail bypass is installed, a timetable of opening slots between trains will come into operation (see below). It will be available for use between 7am and 10pm by traffic which is less than 7.5 tonnes (box vans which are less than 8 metres and mini buses and cars towing caravans which are less than 10.8 metres). Traffic over these limits will not be permitted to use the bypass and will have to divert using the A87, A82, A832 and A890. The road to rail bypass will be closed to all traffic between the hours of 10pm and 7am. The rock works are expected to take up to 10 weeks.
