Mo­torists warned to ex­pect traf­fic de­lays at Dal­mally

The Oban Times - - News -

DRIVERS are be­ing warned of a fort­night of traf­fic dis­rup­tion at Dal­mally.

Im­prove­ments to the A85 are sched­uled to be­gin on Mon­day March 6 and will last for up to two weeks.

Works will take place be­tween 7am and 7pm each day, with no works planned for the week­end.

A 10mph con­voy traf­fic man­age­ment sys­tem will be in place dur­ing the works.

Out­with the spec­i­fied work­ing hours, traf­fic man­age­ment will be re­moved but a 30mph speed limit will be in force as traf­fic will be run­ning on a tem­po­rary sur­face. Ac­cess will be main­tained for emer­gency ser­vices at all times.

Ed­die Ross, BEAR Scot­land’s north-west rep­re­sen­ta­tive, said: ‘Th­ese works will lead to a much im­proved road sur­face when they are com­plete, en­hanc­ing the qual­ity of the trans­port links in the area as well as im­prov­ing safety for the trav­el­ling pub­lic.

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