Road safety improvements on Highland tourist route

The A830
The A830

A £200,000 project to make the Road to the Isles tourist route in Lochaber safer for motorists is due to start on Monday.

Resurfacing of a 1,200-yard stretch of the A830 Fort William to Mallaig road is expected to take about two weeks, finishing on Friday October 31.

The work will be carried out from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday, with no work taking place at weekends.

Bear Scotland’s north west unit representative, Eddie Ross, said: “These resurfacing works have been designed to improve the running surface of this stretch of road, which will ensure it is smoother and safer for motorists.

“Due to the location and nature of the works, some disruption is to be expected and we thank road users for their patience in advance.”

Temporary traffic lights and a 10mph convoy system will be in operation while works are underway, with a 30mph speed limit outwith working hours.

Meanwhile, Bear Scotland is also about to begin work on a second phase of verge improvements alongside the A87 Kyle to Portree road at Breakish, near Broadford, on Skye.

The works, between the village hall and the Lower Breakish Junction, will start on Monday November 3 and are scheduled to be completed by the end of December.

Single lane closures with temporary traffic signals and a 30mph speed restriction will be in operation while work is in progress between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday. There will also be occasional weekend working where traffic sensitive operations are required.
