Project to begin on Tuesday 17 May over four days


Motorists using the A835 near Craigdarroch are set to benefit from an improved road surface, with works due to get underway on Tuesday 17 May.

The improvements will see over 450 metres of the A835 resurfaced, creating a smoother and safer journey for road users.

The project is scheduled to start on Tuesday 17 May and is planned to take place over four days. Works are programmed to take place between 7am and 7pm and are expected to be completed by Friday 20 May, subject to weather conditions.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers as well as motorists, there will be a 10mph convoy system and temporary traffic lights in place during working hours. With the exception of the night of Tuesday 17 May when traffic signals will remain in operation, traffic management will be removed outwith working hours; however, a 30mph speed limit will remain in place as traffic will be running over a temporary surface.

Access through the works site for emergency services will be maintained at all times.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “This surfacing project on the A835 near Craigdarroch will help to address defects and greatly improve the route for road users.

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as they can, and we thank the local community and road users for their patience in advance.  We encourage road users to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information.”
