Surfacing improvements on the A830 near Fort William are set to get underway on Tuesday May 31.

The programme of improvements will see around 620 metres of the A830 resurfaced from the west of Banavie to the Co-op food store in Corpach, creating a smoother and safer road for motorists.

The project is scheduled to begin on Tuesday May 31 and is expected to take place over eight days between 9.30am and 4pm. All works are expected to be completed by 4pm on Friday June 10.  No works will take place over the weekend period and Friday June 3.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and road users alike a 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours. Traffic management will be removed outwith working hours; however, a temporary 30mph speed limit will remain in place as traffic will be travelling over a temporary surface.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: ‘This project will help address defects and greatly improve the road surface for all users.

‘Our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as they can, and we thank the local community and road users for their patience in advance while we complete this project.

‘We encourage road users to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date travel information.’
