Argyll and Bute Council’s roads teams have been working hard and have made great progress on the roads of Helensburgh and Lomond.   

The works being carried out are part of £15.6million the council has committed to improving the roads network over the next three years.  £7 million is earmarked for 2011-2012.

The full length of Peaton road has now been resurfaced. 

Resurfacing on both Church Avenue and Red Road in Cardross is now finished, ahead of schedule.  Road markings on both of these streets are to follow. 

Spokesperson for transport and infrastructure Councillor Duncan MacIntyre said: “I am delighted that the works being carried out across the Helensburgh and Lomond area are progressing so well.  They will make a huge difference to local residents and businesses, as well as tourists who are visiting the area.

“The roads teams have worked really hard, and have completed Peaton Road, as well as some roads in Cardross, already.  Some of the works across the rest of the area have already started, and are on their way to completion too.  In addition to this, the surface dressing programme has started, with the council making the best of any dry weather we get to complete this.”
