Work is to begin immediately to repair a stretch of road on the outskirts of Dallas which suffered severe damage during yesterday’s flooding.
Around 300 square metres will have to be resurfaced and the road – which links the village with the B9010 – is likely to remain closed until the middle of next week.
The damage to the roadway was caused by a torrent of floodwater after the nearby River Lossie topped its banks.
Homes in the village escaped damage largely thanks to a partially completed embankment currently under construction following flooding in 2014.
On that occasion 27 properties were affected with the cost of damage being put at £600,000.
Until the damaged roadway is repaired motorists are advised to take an alternative route via Dallas Lodge and Branchill before rejoining the B9010.
