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.’
