Drivers in Oban are being advised of temporary traffic lights in town as part of Scottish Water’s essential work on a £2.7 million project.

Caledonia Water Alliance (CWA), Scottish Water’s alliance partner, is carrying out  upgrades on the local water network infrastructure and temporary three-way traffic lights will be at the junction of the A816 and McCaig Road from Monday March 29 for about one week.

There will be no work from April 5 to Monday April 12 but then there will be temporary traffic lights on the A816 as work progresses south from the junction of McCaig Road.

Work will take place on a short 110 metre stretch of the roadway and is expected to take around eight weeks, road traffic management has been agreed with Argyll and Bute Council.

Access to properties will be maintained, however parking within the work areas will be
restricted during this time.

‘Scottish Water thanks road users and local residents in advance for their patience and
understanding during these essential works,’ said a Scottish Water spokesperson.
