Work to repair a deteriorated section of road surface on the A83 at Strone Point is set to get underway from Sunday night, February 25 for five nights and will involve overnight road closures from 8pm until 7am.


The £80,000 resurfacing improvements are part of a £650,000 programme of urgent repairs across the A83 trunk road.


The resurfacing worksstarting on Sunday address a section of road almost a kilometre in length. 


Diversions will be in place from Inveraray via the A819, A85 and A82 and from Tarbet via the A82, A85 and A819. 


Emergency services will be able to pass through the works at all times.  Access to properties within the closure as well as for local bus services will also be maintained at all times, although some delay is inevitable. The road will be fully open during the day.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “These essential resurfacing works have been brought forward in our programme to address the road surface at Strone which has deteriorated rapidly in recent months.

“The cold and wet winter weather has had an unprecedented effect on some sections of the A83, including this section at Strone, and these works will allow us to carry out a full repair to the road surface here.

“The team will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible, and we encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information.”
