Works begin on Tuesday 7 May for six nights



Motorists using the A83 through Inveraray are set to benefit from an improved road surface as resurfacing works are set to start next week for six nights.


The £100,000 investment by Transport Scotland will see improvements to a section of the A83 at Inveraray, creating a smoother and safer road for motorists.


The overnight improvements are scheduled to start Tuesday 7 May and will take six nights to complete. The project will take place between 7pm and 7am each night with surfacing works due to be completed by 7am on Wednesday 15 May. No works are programmed for Friday and Saturday nights.


To ensure the safety of road workers and motorists, a 10mph convoy traffic management system will be in place throughout the works. All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours.


The resurfacing works will include the on-street parking areas and bus stops throughout Inveraray. Parking will therefore be restricted in these areas between 7pm and 7am each night.  Vehicular access to the properties and businesses within the site will be maintained when safe to do so. 


Teams will work to complete any noisy operations such as the milling of the worn-out road surface before 11pm each night to keep any disruption to residents to a minimum. 


Consultation has been carried out with all relevant stakeholders to inform them of the project and inform them of the traffic management arrangements in place.  


Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s Representative for the North West, said: “These £100,000 essential resurfacing improvements will help address the defects on this section of the A83 and will greatly improve the road surface for motorists.

“We’ve taken steps to help minimise disruption including scheduling the project to take place overnight and avoiding working on Friday and Saturday nights. The traffic management arrangements are necessary to keep roadworkers as well as motorists safe during the improvements however, our teams will work to complete the resurfacing as quickly and safely as possible.  Our teams will also look to carry out any noisy operations early in the evening to ensure any disruption to residents is kept a minimum.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance and would also encourage them to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information.”
