New £90,000 signalised puffin crossing to be installed on A830 in Corpach

Works start Monday 14 January for five weeks

 

A new £90,000 puffin crossing is set to be installed in Corpach which will help improve road safety on the A830 with works set to get underway later this month. 

The new signalised puffin crossing will replace the existing uncontrolled crossing point near the Co-operative allowing pedestrians to safely cross the A830 and help improve road safety on the route. As well as the installation of the new traffic signals, works will also include drainage improvements, carriageway resurfacing, footway reconstruction, new road markings and signage improvements.   

The improvements are scheduled to start on Monday 14 January and will take up to five weeks to complete. Works will take place between 9.30am and 4pm on Mondays to Fridays during the project.  

To ensure the safety of road workers and motorists, temporary traffic lights will be in place on the A830 in Corpach during working hours. Temporary pedestrian access will be arranged throughout the works to allow safe access through the site. All traffic management will be removed outside of working hours to keep any disruption to road users to a minimum.  

Consultation has been carried out with the local Community Council, the local Authority, local businesses, residents and other relevant stakeholders to make them aware of our plans and share information about the project. 

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “Road safety is a top priority at BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland, and this scheme on the A830 in Corpach is part of our commitment to improving pedestrian facilities on the trunk road network. 

“The new controlled crossing facility in Corpach will allow users to safely cross this section of the A830 helping to improve road safety for the community.

“The traffic management arrangements are essential for the protection of our workforce as well as motorists and pedestrians, however we’ve arranged these works to take place during the daytime and our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and as safely as possible. 

“We encourage all road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information.”
