Drivers’ misery at list of works
Nightmare delays as main roads clogged up
Disruptive roadworks are causing nightmare delays and driving motorists across Dumbarton and Alexandria round the bend.
A number of main roads are clogged up with temporary traffic lights and diversions as a series of separate works are carried out across the area.
This week saw work begin in Dalreoch to resurface the road at Dalreoch junction.
Temporary lights were put in place on Monday on Cardross Road and will remain in place for three weekends.
In Bonhill, residents in Beechwood will only have one access into the estate as Beechwood Drive is closed for resurfacing.
Lomond Road in Balloch was also affected by nightmare delays as lights were put in place to allow Scottish Water to repair a burst water main. The work finished on Saturday.
Scotland Transerv announced this week that five days of overnight resurfacing of the A82 between Gavinburn junction and Dunglass Roundabout will begin on September 11.
Work is also taking place on the A82 from Garshake Road to the Barloan Roundabout until September 10.
Traffic management will be in place from 8pm each evening to 6am the following morning until Sunday, with the second wave of work beginning next Friday.
Road closures are also in place on Bank Street in Alexandria due to work being carried out by Network Rail. Engineers are blasting old paint off
the bridge, inspecting and repairing the metalwork and renewing the timber deck.
Diversions will be in place until October 15.
Access to St Mary’s Primary School, Ferryfield Nursery and Alexandria Station dropoff area will be maintained but the bus stops around this area will be temporarily closed and the car park to the east of the railway will also be closed.
The railway must fully close from 11.30pm on Friday, September 15, until 6am on Monday, September 18, when buses will replace trains.
Roadworks on the Erskine Bridge will be ongoing until mid-October and delays of up to half an hour should be expected.
A spokesman for West Dunbartonshire Council said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused by road improvements and repairs, which are always carefully planned and coordinated in order to minimise any impact on users of the network.
“It is vital that our roads are properly maintained and occasionally it is necessary to close roads or create diversions to ensure the safety of road workers and to complete the works as quickly as possible.”
