Work starts on A83 road surface upgrade
MOTORISTS using the A83 to the north of Glaschoine, near Cairndow, will benefit from an improved road surface as works with a value of £105,000 are carried out in the first two weeks of September.
Improvements to the 590m section of the A83 began on Monday and are likely to take up to two weeks to complete. The work is being carried out between 7am and 7pm each day from Monday to Friday with no works planned at weekends. Due to the restricted width of the carriageway on this section of the A83 and to ensure the safety of road users and road workers, a 10mph convoy system will be in operation while the work is undertaken.
Traffic management will be removed outwith working hours to keep disruption to a minimum, although a speed restriction of 30mph will remain in place as traffic will be running on a temporary surface.
Eddie Ross, of BEAR Scotland, said: ‘These essential works will improve the existing road surface and address any cracks or potholes in the road, enhancing the safety of the A83 at this section. Some delays are inevitable and we would therefore encourage motorists to plan their journey ahead, where possible.’
