Motorists using the A82 and A85 near Crianlarich are set to benefit from an improved road surface as surfacing improvements are set to begin next week.

The £50,000 investment by Transport Scotland will see improvements to both the north and south Crianlarich roundabouts and their approaches, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The project is set to begin on Monday September 2 and is programmed to take up to four nights to complete. The surfacing improvements will take place between 7pm and 7am each night and are expected to be completed by 7am Friday September 6.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, temporary traffic lights will be in place during working hours. All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours, however a 30mph temporary speed limit will remain in place as vehicles will be travelling over a temporary surface.

Eddie Ross, from BEAR Scotland said: ‘The £50,000 investment from Transport Scotland will allow our teams to carry out this essential resurfacing project at this section of the A82, greatly improving the condition and safety of the route in this area.

‘Our teams will look to do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible. We thank motorists and the local community in advance for their patience while we carry out the project. We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website before setting off for up to date traffic information.’
