Mo­torists warned to ex­pect de­lays on A82

The Oban Times - - News -

DAY­TIME traf­fic will be dis­rupted on the A82 south of Bal­lachul­ish Bridge un­til to­mor­row (Fri­day) for road re-sur­fac­ing.

The im­prove­ment works are sched­uled to take place be­tween 7am and 7pm from to­day and to­mor­row, with the project ex­pected to be com­pleted be­fore the week­end.

The £75,000 in­vest­ment by Trans­port Scot­land will see im­prove­ments to a 400m sec­tion of the A82, ‘cre­at­ing a smoother and safer jour­ney for mo­torists’.

The A82 will re­main open through­out. How­ever, a 10mph con­voy sys­tem of traf­fic man­age­ment will be in place to al­low the works to be car­ried out safely for the pro­tec­tion of the mo­torists as well as road work­ers.

The con­voy sys­tem will be re­moved out­side of work­ing hours though a tem­po­rary speed re­stric­tion of 30mph will re­main as traf­fic will be run­ning on a tem­po­rary sur­face.

Ed­die Ross, BEAR Scot­land’s north-west rep­re­sen­ta­tive, said: ‘We would en­cour­age road users to plan their jour­neys ahead by check­ing the Traf­fic Scot­land web­site for up to date in­for­ma­tion.’
