  • Updated programme of work for A828 improvements
  • Works now taking place at two locations 25-28 April
  • North of Oban Airport 25-27 April for three days
  • Ardtorna 28 April for one day
  • South of Portnacroish and North of Appin works have been postponed


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 two locations this month.


Resurfacing works will take place at Ardtorna and North of Oban Airport between 25 and 28 April. The improvements will make the road surface more durable and providing a smoother, safer journey for drivers.


  • North of Oban Airport: Resurfacing improvements on 300m of carriageway will be made from Tuesday 25 April to Thursday 27 April. There will be lane closures with a 10mph convoy from 7am to 7pm. Outside working hours temporary traffic lights and a 30mph speed limit will be in place, as traffic will be travelling over a temporary surface.
  • Ardtorna: Road surface improvements on 200m of carriageway will be made on Friday 28 April. There will be 2-way traffic lights with a 10mph speed limit in place between 7am and 7pm.


To ensure the safety of our workforce and the travelling public, works that were planned north of Appin on Thursday 27 April and south of Portnacroish on Friday 28 April are now planned for nightshift closure with new dates to be confirmed.


Stakeholder engagement has been carried out and access to emergency service vehicles will be available at all times.
