The Scottish Government's Strategic Transport Projects Review identified a number of measures to reduce congestion and improve traffic flows along several sections of the A82.
The route between Tarbet and Inverarnan runs adjacent to the west bank of Loch Lomond and the River Falloch for 17 km (10.6 miles).
It is located within the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is a complex site that is physically constrained, with the loch on one side, and steep terrain and railway on the other.
The study commission is considering issues including:
- the impact of widening the road
- opportunities to improve visibility and reduce the levels of accidents
- improving drainage
- pedestrian and cycle access
- stopping opportunities, including lay-by provision
- delivering journey time reliability
- reducing disruption from road maintenance and improving resilience
How to get involved
Transport Scotland and CH2M Fairhurst Joint Venture are working closely with Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, Argyll and Bute Council, Nature Scot, Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Network Rail, community councils and other key stakeholders in undertaking the study.
We are also talking to groups representing all users of the A82.
