Cool kids enjoy Lochgilphead heatwave
Following completion of the surfacing, further minor construction works to complete the project will take place ahead of the A83 opening to both lanes again later in July.
Eddie Ross, of trunk road management company BEAR Scotland, said: ‘We thank motorists and the local community for their continued patience while teams work to complete the project.’
The Strone Point project was projected to take 28 weeks to complete. By mid-July the work will have been under way for around 30 to 31 weeks.
