Disruption to business
Transport Scotland aims to minimise the impact that road works and lane closures have on businesses and communities.
Transport Scotland, through its Operating Companies, discharge Scottish Ministers’ duty to manage and maintain trunk roads in a safe condition.
Unfortunately this work can sometimes result in disruption to local communities. When road works are required or improvement schemes are implemented, we will consult with local residents, businesses and community councils and other local stakeholders.
Our aim is to minimise disruption whenever possible, maintain access to local businesses and assist motorists to make alternative travel arrangements.
Compensation is not payable for disruption to business arising from roadworks on the trunk road and motorway network.
