Argyll and Bute Council’s roads teams have been working hard and have made great progress with the road works planned across Mid Argyll, Kintyre and the Isles.

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.

So far, many of the works have been started, with projects on the roads in Ford and Kilberry already complete. In Ford, the road between the A816 and the C38 junction has been resurfaced. 

In Kilberry, the road between Avinagallan and the golf course has also been resurfaced.  Resurfacing works have also been completed from the A83 to Loch Arial.

Spokesperson for transport and infrastructure Councillor Duncan MacIntyre said: “I am excited that the works being carried out across Mid-Argyll, Kintyre and the Isles 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 been working really hard, and have completed the works at Ford and Kilberry on schedule.  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.”
