The A83 between Killean and Muasdale is to be resurfaced following an investment of £225,000 from Transport Scotland.

The road improvements will see a 1km section of the A83 between Killean and Muasdale resurfaced over two weeks to repair defects, cracks or potholes.

This will create a smoother road surface on this section of the A83, helping to improve road safety for all road users.

The scheme is scheduled to begin on Sunday August 27 and is expected to take up to two weeks to complete.

Works will take place overnight between 9.15pm and 5am, Sunday nights to Friday mornings, with no work scheduled to take place on Friday or Saturday nights.

Due to the nature of the resurfacing operations, a road closure will be in place each night during working hours to ensure the safety of the workforce and motorists.

Unfortunately there is no alternative diversion route so any waiting vehicles will be escorted through the site at approximately 10pm, midnight, 2am and 4am.

The amnesties have been timed with consideration to bus and ferry services, in an effort to minimise disruption, said Transport Scotland.
Emergency services will be able to pass through the works at all times.
