Motorists using the A85 at Tyndrum Junction are set to benefit from an improved road surface as resurfacing improvements are set to get under way on Sunday (June 30).

The £60,000 project is expected to take two nights to complete. The improvements will take place between 7pm and 7am each night, with surfacing works scheduled to be completed by 7am Tuesday July 2.

To ensure the safety of roadworks and motorists, there will be a 10mph convoy traffic management system in place throughout the works. All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours.

Vehicular access through the junction will be maintained when safe to do so.

Consultation has been carried out with all relevant stakeholders to inform them of the project and inform them of the traffic management arrangements in place.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s Representative for the North West, said: ‘We’ve taken steps to help minimise disruption as much as possible including carrying out the improvements overnight.

‘We thank motorists for their patience in advance and would also encourage them to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information.’
