Overnight works start Sunday 21 January for five nights

Bridge closed from midnight to 6am for safety each night


Essential maintenance works to road lighting and traffic signal systems will be carried out on the A828 Connel Bridge later this month.

Works are scheduled to start on Sunday 21 January and operate between midnight until 6am the following morning for a five night period.

To ensure the safety of road workers and road users, the bridge will be closed each night to all traffic and pedestrians to allow safe access to the electrical systems. The bridge will be open as normal out with these working hours.

Traffic will be diverted northbound at Connel via the A85 and A82 and southbound at Ballachulish via the A82 and A85 during working hours.  Emergency Services will be able to pass through the works at all times.   Local access will also be maintained across the bridge at approximately hourly intervals for a short period when it is safe to do so, starting from 1am.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “These essential electrical works on Connel Bridge will ensure that the road lighting and traffic signal systems are maintained to a safe working standard. 

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption as much as possible and arranged for this scheme to take place overnight and avoiding the busier Friday and Saturday nights to limit any impact as much as possible.  

“The road closures are essential to keep everyone safe during the electrical works on the bridge, and teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.

“We encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information and leaving extra time to complete their journey.”

Real time journey information is available from Traffic Scotland on, twitter @trafficscotland, or on the new Traffic Scotland mobile site
