VIDEO: Check out this stunning aerial footage of a £1.6m road safety project in Argyll

Check out this aerial footage of a £1.6 million road safety project on the banks of Loch Fyne in Argyll and Bute.

The project on the A83 at Strone Point at Inverary has seen around 370 metres of carriageway realigned and a section of the hillside scaled back, widening the road and improving driver visibility.

Drainage systems have been upgraded to improve resilience in wet conditions, and new safety barriers and bike guards have also been installed.

Transport secretary Michael Matheson said: “The section of the A83 at Strone Point on Loch Fyne is single carriageway with a history of fatal and serious accidents.

“This project has made it safer by opening up the width of the road and improving driver visibility around the tight bend.

“The A83 is the gateway to Argyll and Bute and we recognise its strategic importance.”
