Motorists using the main road connecting Oban and Fort William will have to make alternative plans this Sunday and Monday night.

The A828 in Duror will see over 200m of the road resurfaced with Bear Scotland saying it will create a safer and smoother journey for road users.

The overnight improvements are scheduled to begin on Sunday December 8 and are expected to take two nights to complete. The project will take place between 7pm and 6am each night with surfacing due to be completed by 6am Tuesday December 10.

A signed diversion will be in place via the A85 and A82 during working hours, adding approximately 45 minutes on to journey times.  Alternatively, vehicles will be held at the work site until they are able to be escorted safely through the roadworks during the set amnesty periods at 8pm, 9pm, 10pm, midnight, 2am and 4am. Emergency services will be able to pass through the project at all times.

The A828 will remain open outwith working hours, however a 30mph speed limit will be in place to ensure vehicles can safely pass over the temporary surface.
