New £50,000 road safety project on the A828 at Barcaldine

 

Works start Monday 20 January for approximately two weeks

 

A new £50,000 road safety project began today (Monday 20 Januray) on the A828 north of Barcaldine. 

The project will involve teams installing a new road safety barrier on a corner north of Barcaldine as well as new warning signs on the bend and its approaches, creating a safer route for motorists.

The new barrier has been designed to protect road users from roadside hazards and the installation of the signs will raise greater road user awareness of the bends ahead.

The improvements started on Monday 20 January and are programmed to take up to two weeks to complete.

The A828 will remain open throughout the project, however to ensure the safety of road workers and motorists temporary traffic lights and a 30mph speed limit will be in place throughout the improvements.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “Road safety is a top priority at BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland, and this scheme on the A828 at Barcaldine is part of our commitment to improving road safety on the trunk road network.

“The improvements will help to protect road users from roadside hazards including trees and steep verges, helping to improve road safety for all road users.

“To keep everyone safe during the works temporary traffic lights will be in place throughout the project, however our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.

“We thank motorists in advance for their patience while we work on this project and we would encourage them to plan ahead by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date information.”
