Following a reassessment of the upcoming programme of works for the A87 due to commence next week, the working schedule has been refined and amended slightly.
The combined works are still within the previously advertised four nights, however there has been a change to the running order of the works as below.
The A87 Ardochy Forest works will now be completed in one night as opposed to the previously advertised two nights – on the 22nd August.
The A82/A87 Invergarry Junction works are now programmed to take three nights instead of the previously advertised two nights and therefore these works will now commence on 23rd August for three nights.
The A87 will be closed in both directions with traffic diverted via the A82 and A887 during working hours. During the A87/ A82 Invergarry junction works, the A82 will be subject to a 10mph convoy during the working hours.
Traffic management will be removed outwith working hours, however a 30mph speed limit and warning signs will remain in place, as traffic will be travelling over a temporary road surface. Access through the works site for emergency services will be maintained at all times.
The programme of improvements will see over one kilometre of the A87 and A82 resurfaced, creating a smoother and safer road for motorists.
The project is programmed to get underway on Sunday, August 22, and will take place over four nights between 8pm and 6am. All work is scheduled to be completed by 6am Thursday, August 26, subject to weather conditions.
Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: ‘This surfacing project across these two locations of A87 and A82 will help address defects and greatly improve the surface for motorists.’
