Work set to begin on Sunday 25 October for three weeks with overnight road closures in place for safety each week, Sunday to Thursday, 8pm-6am.

Works amnesties to be implemented at 9pm, 10pm, 12am, 2am and 4am to allow traffic to safely pass through project

An essential surfacing project worth over £450,000 is set to take place on the A82 north of Spean to upgrade the road surface.

The project will see almost two kilometres of road resurfaced on the A82 through Stronaba, around two miles north of Spean Bridge, which will create a smooth road surface and improve safety for road users.

The overnight project is scheduled to start on Sunday 25 October and will take up to three weeks to compete, taking place between 8pm and 6am Sunday to Thursday. 

No works are programmed to take place on Friday or Saturday nights.

For the safety of workforce and road users, the A82 will close overnight but set amnesties will be implemented at 9pm, 10pm, 12am, 2am and 4am to allow traffic to safely pass through the site.

Outwith working hours a temporary speed limit of 30mph will be in force as traffic will be required to run on a temporary road surface.

Access for emergency services will be maintained at all times.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said:

“This £450,000 surfacing project on the A82 north of Spean Bridge will help address any defects on the A82 and greatly improve the running surface for motorists.

“For everyone’s safety we have to close the road overnight while we carry out the work however, we’ve arranged for amnesties to be implemented that will allow road users to be safety escorted through the worksite at pre-defined times.

“We’re also avoiding working on Friday and Saturday nights to further limit the impact of our works at weekends.

“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 while we complete this project.

“We encourage motorists to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information.”
