A83 Tarbet to Arrochar


Improvements begin on Monday 7 October


Motorists and pedestrians using the A83 between Tarbet and Arrochar will benefit from improved road drainage and footway upgrades as £170,000 of improvements are due to begin next week.

The improvements, which follow on from a project which was completed last year, will involve the widening of both the footway and carriageway by 50cms, as well as upgrades to the existing drainage system over a section of the road almost 560m long between Tarbet and Arrochar.

The project is set to begin on Monday 7 October and is programmed to take up to five weeks to complete. No works are programmed to take place over the weekend.

The A83 will remain open throughout the improvements, however to ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, there will be temporary traffic lights in place 24-hours a day during the phases of the project.

Access to properties will be maintained for the duration of the works.

To accommodate the footway operations, it will be necessary to close sections of the footway for periods of time for safety reasons.  As a footway diversion is not possible pedestrians will instead be escorted through site by BEAR teams for safety. 

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “The drainage improvements will help ensure any excess water on the A83 is drained away from the carriageway effectively, helping to improve road safety. 

“The footway upgrades will also improve the pedestrian facilities on this section of the A83, by removing the grass strip to widen the footway by around 50cms.  

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible. We thank road users and pedestrians for their patience in advance and encourage them to plan ahead by checking the Traffic Scotland website for real-time journey information.”
