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.


As Ar­gyll basked in Mediter­ranean tem­per­a­tures soar­ing to the mid-20s Cel­cius this week, these Lochgilp­head young­sters cooled off with an ice- cream from The Sweetie Jar on Ar­gyll Street. Pic­tured from left, as their ice-creams melted, are Blair Hous­ton aged six, eightyear-old Lexie Hous­ton and Al­fie Craw­ford, who is also six.
