OVERNIGHT resurfacing work along the A82 is set to begin next week, causing disruption for drivers between July 8 and July 10.

Scotland Transerv, the body that manages and maintains south west Scotland’s road networks, will resurface a stretch of the A82 Northbound, between Gavinburn and Dunglass Roundabout, from 8pm on Wednesday, July 8, until 6am on Thursday, July 9. It will then recommence at 8pm on Thursday, July 9, until 6am on Friday, July 10.

Traffic management will only be implemented once vehicle volumes are sufficiently low, Transerv have said.

Drivers are asked to allow plenty of additional time for essential overnight journeys.

Brendan O’Sullivan, Scotland TranServ’s network area manager, said: “The A82 is an essential route connecting Glasgow and the Central Belt with Dumbarton, Loch Lomond and the north.

"As such it is used by emergency services, freight, retail and delivery traffic as part of their essential working.

“Many new working practices have been implemented across our workforce and those of our contractors and suppliers in the delivery of our future resurfacing programmes.

"Thorough risk assessments have been carried out as we take a lead in the delivery of trunk road maintenance.

“It is important that we continue resurfacing works in order to maintain road safety.

"Traffic volumes currently remain low, in line with government advice, and therefore any such impact on the travelling public will also remain low at this time.

“Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, would like to take this opportunity to thank drivers for making only essential journeys over the last few months, and playing their part in protecting the country’s key workers.”
