Transport Scotland is to spend £60,000 resurfacing between the A82/A83 junction in Tarbet and Bemersyde Road, Arrochar.
Work started today (June 24) and will take place overnight (between 9pm and 6am), finishing at 6am on Friday, June 28.
Outwith these hours a temporary speed restriction of 30mph will be in place due to the temporary surface. Emergency services and residents living within the affected area will be able to travel within the restricted times, as long as it is safe to do so. Consultation has been carried out with the emergency services, local businesses, residents, and other stakeholders to advise them of the forthcoming works.
The A82 will be closed at Tarbet and Crianlarich in both directions while work is taking place to keep road workers and road users safe. A signed diversion via the A85, A83 and A819 will be in place during the restricted period. This will add around 52 minutes to journey times.
Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative stated: ‘This £60,000 surfacing improvement project will help address the defects on this section on the A82 and greatly improve the surface for motorists.
‘We’ve taken steps to help minimise disruption as much as possible by programming the project to take place overnight.’
He thanked motorists and the local community in advance for their patience during the project and advised motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland’s website: www.trafficscotland.org, twitter account: @trafficscotland, or new mobile site: my.traffic.scotland.org
