Forres High Street pavement works set to continue

The next phase of work on upgrading the pavements in Forres High Street will get under way next week.

It will involve the section between Gordon Street and Auchernack and will last around eight weeks.

The existing concrete footways will be replaced with coloured concrete block paving and will continue the red and grey theme originally agreed with Forres Community Council.

A Moray Council spokesman said: “During the works, which will be undertaken from east to west in two main sections, a safe working zone will be established on the north footway with traffic lights in operation to restrict traffic to the south side of High Street.

“This requires temporary no parking restrictions along the frontage of St Laurence Church and the closure of the north footway, although access will be maintained.

“The works have been planned to minimise disruption to businesses and residents and pedestrian access will be maintained during opening hours.

“We apologise for any inconvenience and would ask motorists and pedestrians to exercise extra care while the works are in progress.”
