Motorists using the A828 are set to benefit from an improved road surface, with work planned by Transport Scotland’s operating company BEAR Scotland at four locations this month.
Resurfacing works will take place north of Appin bends, south of Portnacroish and north of Oban Airport between 24 and 28 April and a scheme will also take place south of the Highland boundary from Wednesday 10 May to Thursday 18 May. Details of the projects are as follows:.
Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “We have a strong track record of delivering road improvement schemes and keeping the network moving for the benefit of motorists and local communities. These road surface improvements on the A828 will help address defects and reduce the need for ongoing maintenance. The project will also improve the road surface, creating a smoother ride for road users.
“Traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of both roadworkers and motorists. Regrettably there will be some delays, but our teams will do all they can to complete the scheme as safely and quickly as possible, and we thank the local community and road users for their patience in advance while we complete these projects. We encourage motorists to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date travel information.”
