£70,000 im­prove­ments on A82 to start on Mon­day

The Oban Times - - News -

MO­TORISTS us­ing the A82 be­tween In­ver­ar­nan and Cri­an­larich are to ben­e­fit from an im­proved road sur­face as £70,000 worth of resur­fac­ing works are car­ried out next week.

Works on the 5km sec­tion of the A82 north of In­ver­ar­nan will be­gin on Mon­day Fe­bru­ary 13 and are ex­pected to take up to three days to com­plete.

The work will be car­ried out be­tween 7am and 7pm each day.

The road will re­main open, how­ever as a re­sult of the lim­ited road width through this sec­tion a con­voy traf­fic man­age­ment sys­tem will be put in place to en­sure the safety of road work­ers and mo­torists.

Traf­fic man­age­ment will be re­moved out­with work­ing hours, but a re­duced speed limit of 30mph will re­main in place as traf­fic will be run­ning over a tem­po­rary sur­face.

Ed­die Ross, BEAR Scot­land’s Rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the North West, said: ‘These es­sen­tial resur­fac­ing works will up­grade the ex­ist­ing road sur­face, greatly im­prov­ing the ride qual­ity and safety for road users.

‘ We’ve sched­uled these works to take place ahead of the busy tourist sea­son to min­imise any im­pact to mo­torists and the lo­cal econ­omy, and en­cour­age mo­torists to fol­low any traf­fic man­age­ment signs in place for their safety.

‘ We thank mo­torists for their pa­tience in ad­vance and would also en­cour­age them to plan ahead be­fore set­ting out by check­ing the Traf­fic Scot­land web­site for up to date travel in­for­ma­tion.’
