Motorists are being warned to expect disruption for up to 10 weeks caused by roadworks on the A828 near Creagan.

A £300,000 project to widen a section of the A828 trunk road next to Loch Creran began on Monday of this week, January 22.

The project will involve building up a section of the sea wall at the bends south of Creagan by installing more than 1,800 tonnes of rock amour along the shore line, before extending the road verge on top of the new wall.

This will also allow the carriageway to be widened by an extra half-metre.  The 300m stretch of road will then be resurfaced and a new road safety barrier installed.

The project is expected to take up to 10 weeks to complete. The A828 will remain open during the project, but to keep workers and motorists safe temporary traffic lights will be in place throughout the works.
