A £50,000, 10-week project to make a safer path by the A82 through Tyndrum started on Monday November 29.
The upgrade, between Pine Trees Leisure Park and the Green Welly Stop, includes footway resurfacing, kerb realignment and the installation of tactile paving.
The project will take approximately ten weeks to complete, with work taking place between 7am and 7pm each day. Currently no work is planned for the weekends or during the festive period.
Temporary traffic lights will likely be in place for the duration of the works. A temporary footway will be provided. All traffic management will be removed over the festive period.
Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: ‘The works proposed at Tyndrum will see the upgrade of the existing footway, greatly improving the quality and safety for pedestrians through the village.
‘The traffic management required to undertake these works is essential to keep everyone safe, so we encourage all road users and pedestrians to follow any signs or temporary arrangements.
‘Our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and as safely as possible. We would like to thank motorists in advance for their patience during this project and advise them to plan ahead by checking Traffic Scotland for up-to-date journey information and leave some extra time to reach their destination.’
