BEAR Scotland launch consultation ahead of major programme of investment for A828

Public asked for feedback on proposals for completing multiple improvement schemes along the route

Ten day-time road closures proposed to maximise the amount of work that can be completed safely and quickly

 

BEAR Scotland, along with Transport Scotland, have begun consulting on proposals to carry out over £700,000 of road maintenance and improvements on the A828 in the shortest possible timescale with the aim to minimise disruption to road users.

The major programme of work involves fourteen different schemes which will improve the A828 and increase road safety for motorists.  The package includes resurfacing at ten locations providing over 4km of new running surface, as well as drainage upgrades, safety barrier installations, cycleway improvements, road marking refreshment, road stud replacement, installation of bend warning verge markers, landscaping activities and other minor repairs.    The programme will allow multiple schemes to be completed at the same time minimising the overall impact on local residents and commuters over the year.  

The project is planned to be completed under a combination of traffic management arrangements over three weeks in September with, for the first time on this route, proposals for up to ten day-time road closures in two phases covering different sections.  

An information page has been set up to provide more information about the proposed A828 programme, available here.
