Work will start on Sunday on a £450,000 project to resurface a stretch of the A82 Fort William to Glasgow road.

More than a mile of the route through Stronaba, around two miles north of Spean Bridge, will be resurfaced in the operation that will take up to three weeks to complete.

Work will be ongoing between 8pm-6am, Sunday to Thursday, but not on Fridays or Saturdays.

The A82 will close overnight, although changes 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.

Meanwhile, MSP Kate Forbes has been told Transport Scotland remains committed to improving the A82 stretch between Tarbet and Inverarnan.

Michael Matheson, the Cabinet Secretary for Transport, confirmed the transport agency is taking forward the detailed development and assessment of the preferred option for the scheme.

Ms Forbes said: “Although it is not in my constituency, many of my constituents depend on the road as they travel between Fort William and Glasgow.”

Ms Forbes is also seeking the views of road users ahead of making a final submission to a consultation on the A9 junction at Munlochy.

She said: “Having received well over 2,000 submissions from my initial survey, I am well aware of the level of concern at the Munlochy junction as well as the need for urgent action.”
