A82 Clansman to Abriachan, near Drumnadrochit

Works begin Monday 2 December for four nights

·         Overnight road closures in place for safety, 9pm to 6am


Motorists using the A82 at Loch Ness are set to benefit from an improved road surface as surfacing improvements are set to get underway next week.

The improvements will address defects in the road surface at two sections of the A82 approximately four miles north of Drumnadrochit, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The overnight project is scheduled to begin on Monday 2 December and will take up to four nights to complete. The improvements will take place between 9pm and 6am each night with surfacing expected to be finished by 6am on Friday 6 December.

Due to restricted road widths through this section of the A82, a road closure will be in place to ensure the safety of road workers as well as road users. As there is no suitable diversion route available, vehicles will be held at each end of the works site until they are able to be escorted safely through the roadworks during set amnesty periods at 11pm, 1am and 4am. Drivers are encouraged to arrive prior to these times to ensure they are accommodated within the amnesty period.

The A82 will be open as normal during the daytime.

Emergency service vehicles will be allowed to pass through the site during the overnight project.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “These works will greatly improve the road surface on this section of the A82, creating a safer and smoother journey for motorists.

“We have planned the improvements to take place overnight to help minimise disruption as much as possible during the project. The overnight road closures in place are essential to ensure the safety of road workers 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 for their patience in advance and would also encourage them to plan their journeys before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information and where possible allow for extra time to reach their destination.”
