A83 North of Furnace


Works begin Monday 11 November for five days



Motorists using the A83 north of Furnace are set to benefit from an improved road surface as a new surfacing project is set to get underway next week.

The £200,000 investment from Transport Scotland will address any defects in the road, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The improvements are scheduled to begin on Monday 11 November and will take up to five days to complete. The project will take place between 7am and 7pm each day with works expected to be completed by 7pm on Friday 15 November.

To ensure the safety of road workers and motorists, a 10mph convoy system will be in place during the project. Outwith working hours traffic management will be removed although a 30mph speed limit will remain in place as traffic will be travelling over a temporary surface.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “This essential £200,000 resurfacing project on the A83 will upgrade the existing road surface on this stretch of the route, greatly improving the quality and safety for road users.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption by scheduling the project to avoid working at the weekend, and our teams will do all they can to finish the project as quickly and safely as possible.

“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.”
