New £40,000 road improvements to be made to 

A82 Nevis Roundabout, Fort William

Overnight works get underway from Sunday 17 June for up to eight nights

Overnight improvements to help alleviate traffic congestion at Nevis Roundabout in Fort William are set to get underway starting next week.

The overnight works will involve widening the northbound approach of the A82 into two lanes at the roundabout, as well as installing a pedestrian crossing and upgrading existing signage in the area.

The project will be carried out overnight for up to eight nights, excluding Friday and Saturday nights.  The works are set to get underway from Sunday 17 June, 7pm to 6am each night.  Nosier operations will take place first until 11pm each night to keep disruption to residents to a minimum.  

The A82 will remain open throughout the works however to keep road workers as well as motorists safe, temporary traffic lights will be in place overnight during the project.  All traffic management will be removed during the daytime.

Commenting on the project, Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “This project has been designed to help relieve traffic congestion on the A82 in Fort William.

“We’ve been working closely with Transport Scotland and the local community and business to find the best way to help address the problem of traffic congestion at peak times, and the proposed work at Nevis Roundabout should help to improve the flow of traffic through Fort William.

“We’ve planned the project to take place at night and will avoid working on Friday and Saturday nights to limit disruption to road users as much as possible. We’ve also taken steps to ensure the traffic lights can be manually operated in the early evening to further limit any impact. However we would encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance and leave extra time to reach their destination.  

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible as we appreciate that the works will have an impact on nearby residents and will carry out nosier operations before 11pm.  We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking Traffic Scotland and leave extra time to reach their destination.”
