A82 Trunk Road Resurfacing Between Ballachulish and Onich

BEAR Scotland, on behalf of Transport Scotland are planning to undertake essential carriageway resurfacing on the A82 trunk road between Ballachulish and Onich, at three separate locations. 

Works will take place between Sunday 1st March and Thursday 19th March, between the hours of 8pm and 5am, with no works planned for Friday or Saturday nights. 

Location of works below: 

A82 Gollanfield Ph2 Sunday 1st to Monday 2nd March (2 nights) 8pm-5am (Road Closure )

A82 North of B863 Junction to North of Ballachulish Petrol Station
Tuesday 3rd to Thursday 12th March (8 nights) 8pm-5am (Road Closure )

A82 North and South of Ballachulish Bridge Sunday 15th to Thursday 19th (5 nights) 8pm-5am (10mph Convoy)

Due to restricted road widths at these locations, the A82 will be closed whilst works are being carried out. This is necessary to ensure the safety of the workforce and members of public.
However, amnesties will be provided at 9pm, 10pm, 12midnight, 2am and 4am. 

Furthermore, the closure points will be reduced as far as possible each night to further minimise disruption to local residents. Access for emergency services will be maintained at all times.
