Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

WORK is set to start on a ma­jor road im­prove­ment pro­ject in Lochgilp­head.

The £130,000 scheme will see Bish­op­ton Road and part of the A816 Lochgilp­head-Oban road, ei­ther side of the junc­tion, resur­faced and im­prove­ments made to drainage on the A816.

Work is set to start on Mon­day Au­gust 28 and is due to be com­pleted by Tues­day Septem­ber 5.

The junc­tion on to the A816 from Bish­op­ton Road will be closed on Mon­day and Thurs­day Au­gust 31, sub­ject to change. Residents are asked to fol­low signs and traf­fic man­age­ment on the roads.

The coun­cil ad­vises that, dur­ing the works, Bish­op­ton Road should be used for lo­cal ac­cess only, as there will be de­lays to traf­fic.

The al­ter­na­tive route via the A816, A83 and Ar­gyll Street, Lochgilp­head, should be used where pos­si­ble.
