A82 South of Dochfour


Works begin Sunday 17 March for eight nights


  • Overnight road closures in place for safety, 9pm – 6am, excluding Friday and Saturday nights


Motorists using the A82 at Dochfour are set to benefit from of an improved road surface as £315,000 worth of resurfacing works are set to be carried out later this month.

The works will see over 1.3km of carriageway on the A82 south of Dochfour resurfaced and strengthened, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The overnight project is set to begin on Sunday 17 March and is programmed to take eight nights to complete. The surfacing works will take place between 9pm and 6am each night with works due to be completed by 6am Wednesday 27 March. No works will take place on Friday or Saturday nights.

To keep roadworkers as well as road users safe during the project, an overnight road closure will be in place over the extent of the works during working hours due to the narrow road widths on this section of the A82.  To help minimise disruption, amnesties will be provided at 11pm, 1am and 4am to safely escort traffic through the work site. The road will be open during the day however a 30mph speed limit will be in place.

Emergency services will be able to pass through at all times and local access for residents living within the closure points will be maintained when it is safe to pass through the work area.


Consultation has been carried out with emergency services and relevant stakeholders to make them aware of the plans and share information about the project in advance. 


Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “The £315,000 surfacing improvements will help address the defects on this section of the A82 and greatly improve the surface for motorists. 


“Due to the narrow road widths, the traffic management is essential to ensuring the safety of road workers and motorists. We’ve taken on board feedback from the consultation process and steps to minimise disruption by carrying out the works overnight, pushing the start time back to 9pm and avoiding working Friday and Saturday nights to help limit the impact on residents and motorists.


“We thank motorists and the local community in advance for their patience while we carry out the project. We encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website before setting off for up to date traffic information.”
