A82 road re­pairs at Lag­gan Locks

A SEC­TION of the road be­tween Fort Wil­liam and In­ver­ness is to ben­e­fit from £325,000 of resur­fac­ing work.

One and a half kilo­me­tres of the A82, at Lag­gan Locks, will be im­proved in the in­vest­ment by Trans­port Scot­land. Work started on Mon­day and tem­po­rary traf­fic lim­its are in place be­tween 7am and 7pm be­tween Mon­day and Fri­day for the next two weeks. Traf­fic man­age­ment will be re­moved out­side of work­ing hours, but a 30mph limit will re­main.

Ed­die Ross, BEAR Scot­land’s op­er­at­ing com­pany rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the north west, said: ‘ These es­sen­tial works will im­prove the road sur­face at this sec­tion of the A82. Some de­lays are in­evitable and we would there­fore en­cour­age mo­torists to plan their jour­ney ahead, where pos­si­ble.’
