A830 West of Locheilside Station


Works begin Thursday 28 November for 12 days


Motorists using the A830 west of Locheilside Station are set to benefit from of an improved road surface as resurfacing works are due to begin on Thursday.

The project will see improvements carried out on a section of the A830 west of Locheilside, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists. 

The project is set to begin Thursday 28 November and is programmed to take up to 12 days to complete. The improvements will take place between 7am and 7pm each day with surfacing works due to be completed by 7pm on Monday 16 December. No works are programmed for Saturday or Sunday.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, there will be 10mph convoy system in place during the project. All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours however a 30mph temporary speed limit will remain in place as vehicles will be travelling over a temporary surface. The A830 will remain open throughout the project.

Emergency services will be able to pass through the work zone at all times.

Consultation has been carried out with emergency services and relevant stakeholders to make them aware of the plans and share information about the project in advance. 

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “These surfacing improvements will help address the defects on this section of the A830 and greatly improve the road surface for motorists. 

“The traffic management in place is essential to ensure the safety of roadworkers and road users, however our teams will look to do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible. 

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