A82 resurfacing work kicks in

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

Resurfacing works will take place on a stretch of the busy A82 as of this week­end.

Overnight works to around a mile of road at Tyn­drum will get un­der­way on Sun­day evening and run for two weeks.

A con­voy sys­tem and tem­po­rary traf­fic lights will be in place from 7pm to 7am from Sun­day nights to Fri­day morn­ings, with no works planned on Fri­day or Satur­day nights.

All tem­po­rary traf­fic mea­sures will be lifted dur­ing the day time to keep dis­rup­tion to a min­i­mum.

How­ever short diver­sions through Tyn­drum may be in place when resurfacing op­er­a­tions are in the A85 junc­tion area to al­low ac­cess to the Oban road.

The road im­prove­ments, which have been planned fol­low­ing con­sul­ta­tion with the lo­cal au­thor­ity, Trans­port Scot­land, lo­cal busi­nesses and res­i­dents, are de­signed to cre­ate an smoother and safer sur­face for mo­torists.

Ed­die Ross, BEAR Scot­land’s north west rep­re­sen­ta­tive, said: “The £250,000 resurfacing im­prove­ments through Tyn­drum will up­grade the road sur­face through the vil­lage, im­prov­ing road safety.

“We’ve sched­uled th­ese works to take place be­fore the tourist pe­riod and have planned the scheme to take place overnight to do all we can to limit dis­rup­tion.

“We’ve also planned the scheme to avoid work­ing at the busier Fri­day and Satur­day nights to fur­ther limit the im­pact.”
