Motorists using the A85 east of Crianlarich are to benefit from an improved road surface as an essential surfacing project is set to get under way later this month.
The improvements will see over a kilometre of the route resurfaced, creating a safer and smoother journey for road users.
The overnight improvements are scheduled to begin on Monday November 18 and will take two nights to complete. The project will take place between 9pm and 7am each night with surfacing expected to be finished by 7am on Wednesday November 20.
Due to restricted road widths at this section of the A85, a road closure will be in place to ensure the safety of roadworkers as well as road users. To minimise disruption, vehicles will be escorted safety through the roadworks during set amnesty periods at 11pm, 1am, 3am and 5am. Motorists are encouraged to arrive prior to these times to ensure they are accommodated within the amnesty period.
The road will be open during the daytime, however a 30mph speed limit will be in place to ensure vehicles can safely pass over the temporary road surface.
Access for local residents will be maintained during the project and emergency services will be able to pass through the works at all times.
