ALL capital road surfacing works through Mid Argyll,Kintyre and Islay have now been completed.
The Mid Argyll,Kintyre and Islands (MAKI) Area Committee was told that white lining work at some locations was still outstanding,not just in the MAKI area but for the whole of Argyll. This was because of weather-related delays.
Graham Brown,operations manager for Argyll and Bute Council,said there had been some savings in the capital works carried out on the roads,which will mean some additional structural patching done on the A816 and A83 Campbeltown to Kennacraig. He said this would give them a head start on some of the works next year.
In his report he said the contracts for structural patching work on both A816 Lochgilphead to Oban road and the A83 for next year are currently being organised.
General safety-related works,including drainage and permanent patching,is ongoing across the area,with the Patchmaster vehicle being used in the last few months across the area to repair potholes.
