£300K road widening and barrier installation project set for 300m section of A828

A828 South of Creagan

Works begin Monday 22 January

 

A £300,000 project to widen a 300m section of the A828 trunk road next to Loch Creran is set to begin on Monday 22 January.

The project will involve building up a section of the sea wall at the bends south of Creagan by installing over 1,800 tonnes of rock amour along the shore line, before extending the road verge on top of the new wall.  This will also allow the carriageway to be widened by an extra half metre.  The 300m stretch of road will then be resurfaced and a new road safety barrier installed.

The scheme will help improve trunk road safety for road users by widening the carriageway and improving the roadside protection next to the sea loch.

The project will begin on Monday 22 January and is expected to take up to ten weeks to complete.  The A828 will remain open during the project, however to keep road workers as well as motorists safe temporary traffic lights will be in place throughout the works.  

Commenting on the project, Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “We’re pleased that we can begin work on building up the sea wall next to the A828 south of Creagan, meaning we can widen the carriageway by an extra 50cm on the bends next to the sea loch.  

“We’ll also be installing new road barrier along this section of the A828 to improve road safety.

“To keep everyone safe temporary traffic lights will be in place throughout the project, however our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.

“We’ve planned the project to take place outwith the busier summer months to minimise impact to tourism in the area and we encourage all road users to plan their journey’s in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information.”
