£370,000 OVERNIGHT SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS 

A82 TARBET TO CRIANLARICH

Overnight works to take place from Sunday 29 September for two weeks

Overnight road closures in place for safety, 7pm and 7am

Access for local hotels and businesses will be maintained 

 

Three sections of the A82 between Tarbet and Crianlarich are set to benefit from an improved road surface as surfacing improvements are planned to get underway from Sunday night.

The £370,000 project will see more than two kilometres of the route resurfaced, creating a safer and smoother journey for road users. 

The overnight works are set to begin on Sunday 29 September and are expected to take two weeks to complete. The improvements will take place between 7pm and 7am each night with the project scheduled to be completed by 7am on Friday 11 October. No works are programmed to take place on Friday 4 October or Saturday 5 October. 

Due to the narrow widths throughout the three locations, the A82 will be closed in both directions between Tarbert and Crianlarich during working hours to ensure the safety of both roadworkers and motorists. A signed diversion route will be in place via the A82, A85, A819 and A83 during working hours.

The A82 will remain open during the daytime to keep disruption to a minimum, however to ensure the safety of motorists a speed restriction of 30mph will remain in place as traffic will be running on a temporary surface. 

Emergency services will be able to pass through the works at all times, with local access for residents, businesses and scheduled bus services maintained when it is safe to pass through the work area.     Motorists heading southbound from Crianlairch will still be able to reach all hotels and businesses before Pulpit Rock without any impact.  

Consultation has been carried out with all relevant stakeholders to inform them of the project in advance and take on board any feedback.

Commenting on the improvements, Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “This £370,000 surfacing project will greatly improve the road surface on these sections of the A82, creating a safer and smoother journey for motorists. 

“The traffic management is essential for ensuring the safety of roadworkers and motorists during the overnight projects.  We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption as much as possible including scheduling the project to take place overnight, avoiding working on Friday and Saturday nights, and doing everything we can to ensure access is maintained to local businesses and hotels during the closure times. Our teams will do all they can to limit the impact to motorists and complete the project as quickly and safely as possible. 

“We thank motorists in advance for their patience whilst we carry out these essential surfacing improvements on the A82 and would encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information and allow extra time for travel.”
