Ground investigations are to start on the 26th March as part of the work to upgrade the A82 between Tarbet and Inverarnan. The work is expected to last around 18 weeks.

Some traffic management measures will be required when necessary to allow work to be carried out safely. The works will be halted over the Easter holiday weekend from Friday 30 March to Monday 2 April.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

"This ground investigation contract will help inform the design work for the vital upgrade to the stretch of the A82 between Tarbet and Inverarnan.

“We apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause and would thank road users and local people in advance for their patience during the works. The contractor will closely monitor the operation of the traffic management measures to ensure that any delays are kept to a minimum.

“We would ask drivers to plan their journeys in advance using the Traffic Scotland website, Twitter feed or Traffic Scotland radio.”
