SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS FOR TWO LOCATIONS ON A84
A84 Burn of Cambus and A84 Nyadd Farm to Blair Drummond
Works begin Monday 24 April for three weeks
Two sections of the A84 near Doune and Blair Drummond are set to be upgraded later this month.
Improvements to the two stretches of the route will take place first at Burn of Cambus, approximately one mile north of Doune, followed by works to a section of the road at Nyadd Farm to Blair Drummond.
The works will involve strengthening and resurfacing the road to make it more durable and resilient, as well as providing a smoother and safer road for road users.
Plans to complete the works are scheduled as follows:
• A84 Burn of Cambus – Daytime works start from Monday 24 to Friday 28 April and night-time works from Tuesday 2 to Wednesday 3 May
Improvements to a one kilometre stretch of the route at Burn of Cambus will be carried out from Monday 24 April. The works will be split into two phases as follows; Phase One will take place during the daytime from Monday 24 to Friday 28 April, 7am to 7pm, with Phase Two taking place for two nights the following week on Tuesday 2 and Wednesday 3 May, 7pm to 7am. During both phases a 10mph convoy system will be in place for the safety of the workforce as well as motorists during the outlined working times.
• A84 Nyadd Farm to Blair Drummond – Overnight works start Thursday 4 May for up to seven nights
Following the works at Burn of Cambus, overnight works will take place on a section of just under a kilometre of the A84 at Nyadd, starting Thursday 4 May for up to seven nights. Works will take place each night from 7pm to 7am with no work taking place on Friday and Saturday nights. A 10mph convoy system will be in place during the works to keep roadworkers as well as road users safe during the improvements, however this will be lifted during the daytime and at weekends with a 30mph temporary speed limit in place instead.
Commenting on the resurfacing projects, Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “These works will allow our teams to ensure the A84 continues to provide a safe and reliable route for motorists at these two locations.
“We’ve taken steps to limit the impact of these schemes to road users such as making sure no works will take place during the weekend, and also scheduled the works to be carried out overnight where possible to further reduce disruption to traffic. Our teams will look to complete both schemes as quickly and safely as possible.
“We thank road users for their patience in advance and would encourage them to plan their journeys ahead by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date information and leave extra time to reach their destination.”
