At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.
To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.
We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device. In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.
Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).
TWO stretches of road on the A82 between Inverness and Glasgow will be repainted starting next week but the road maintenance company says ‘no significant delays’ are expected.
The work will be completed in two phases, organised by BEAR Scotland, with the initial part of the scheme from Tyndrum to Glencoe Village scheduled to take place between 7am and 7pm during the week from Monday (August 15).
Phase two, covering the A82 from Achintore Road to Lochy Bridge Roundabout, will go ahead between 8pm and 6am the week commencing September 12.
According to the maintenance company, if the weather allows, each phase should take approximately five shifts to complete. There will be no weekend working and the road will remain open throughout.
A spokesman from BEAR said: ‘The works will be undertaken as mobile works using Stop / Go traffic management. Due to the nature of the works being mobile, we do not envisage any significant delays to the travelling public.’
He added: ‘Traffic flows will be monitored and if required works vehicles will pull off the carriageway to allow traffic to clear.’
