Why was it needed?
A survey identified the wall of the A82 Stuckindroin Bridge to be in poor condition. To maintain public safety, Transport Scotland took forward proposals to upgrade the bridge. At the same time, the bridge was widened to accommodate future traffic flows and easier maintenance. The improvement was part of the A82 Bridge Strengthening & Replacement Programme. The work was completed on 6 Sept 2010.
What was involved?
The bridge was widened on its east side, together with the approaches. A new culvert was also be installed north of the bridge. This project was been subject to extensive consultation with local landowners, stakeholders and Loch Lomond National Park. Transport Scotland would like to thank them for their co-operation in the scheme development and their patience while it is delivered.
How much did it cost?
The cost of the works was £1.1 million.
