£220,000 OVERNIGHT SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

 

A84 Kilmahog, West of A821 Junction

 

Project begins Sunday 3 November for five nights

 

·         Overnight road closure in place for safety, 7pm to 7am

 

 

Motorists using the A84 in Kilmahog are to benefit from an improved road surface as £220,000 worth of surfacing improvements are set to get underway this weekend.

The improvements will address any defects in the road surface, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The overnight improvements are scheduled to begin on Sunday 3 November and will take up to five nights to complete. The project will take place between 7pm and 7am each night with expected completion by 7am Friday 8 November.  The overnight closure on Sunday 3 November will not get underway until 8pm to accommodate the Strathyre fireworks display on the same evening. 

Due to the restricted road widths at this section of the A84, a road closure will be in place each night to ensure the safety of road workers as well as road users. A signed diversion route will be in place via the A820, A9, and A85, adding an additional 50 minutes to journey times for road users travelling between Doune and Lochearnhead.

Access for local residents immediately within the extents of the closure points as well as scheduled public bus services will be maintained during the project although delays may be encountered while the site is made safe. Emergency services will be able to pass through the works at all times.

Due to the constraints of the work area it will not be possible to provide fixed amnesty timings when motorists can be guided through the works. Our teams will try to accommodate road users who chose not to use the diversion route when breaks in the surfacing operations can allow safe passage through the work site but delays should be expected.

The A84 will be open during the daytime, however a 30mph speed limit will be in place to ensure vehicles can safely pass over the temporary road surface.

Consultation has been carried out with emergency services, local residents, businesses and other relevant stakeholders to inform them of the project and the traffic management in advance. 

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “This £220,000 surfacing project will help address the defects on this section of the A84 in Kilmahog and greatly improve the surface for motorists.

“Due to the narrow road widths through this area, overnight road closures are essential to ensure the safety of both roadworkers and motorists during this project. We’ve taken steps to help minimise disruption as much as possible by carrying out the work overnight and avoiding working on Friday and Saturday nights, and starting the work an hour later on Sunday 3 November to limit the impact on road users travelling to the Strathyre fireworks display. 

“We encourage motorists to follow the signed diversion route during this project.  We cannot provide any fixed timings of when vehicles will be permitted to safely pass through the work site but our teams will try to accommodate passage during breaks in the surfacing operations, meaning road users are warned to expect delays if they choose not to follow the diversion route. 

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