Roadworks will begin on an major Argyll artery next week.
Drainage and footway upgrades will take place on the A83 Tarbet to Campbeltown road in a £170,000 project between Tarbet and Arrochar.
The work will involve the widening of both the footway and carriageway by 20ins, as well as upgrades to the existing drainage system over a section of the road 0.4miles long.
Starting on Monday October 7, the job is expected to take up to five weeks to complete. No works are programmed to take place over the weekend.
The A83 will remain open throughout the improvements, however there will be temporary traffic lights in place 24 hours a day during the work.
It will be necessary to close sections of the footway for periods of time. Pedestrians will be escorted through site by BEAR teams for safety.
Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s north west representative, said: “The drainage improvements will help ensure any excess water on the A83 is drained away from the carriageway effectively, helping to improve road safety.
“The footway upgrades will remove the grass strip to widen the footway by around 20ins.
“Our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible. We thank road users and pedestrians for their patience in advance and encourage them to plan ahead by checking the Traffic Scotland website for real-time journey information.”
