ARGYLL and Bute Council has completed surfacing works on the A814 Helensburgh to Dumbarton road ahead of schedule, with further improvements planned for the area over the coming week.

Final surfacing works concluded on Thursday July 19 with anti-skid measures and lining improvements completed the following day. 

Traffic was moving freely through the zone by Friday afternoon and First Bus services to Helensburgh also resumed.

Despite dealing with unpredictable weather conditions, the project was completed slightly ahead of schedule. Now, teams are working on the A814 to provide an improved bus stop at Cardross crematorium and hard surfacing on the footway at Keppoch and Colgrain.

These works will be carried out under localised traffic light control to keep traffic moving as much as possible.

Lead councillor for roads and amenity services, Donald Kelly, said: “I would like to express my appreciation for the efforts of our in-house service delivery team and their partners for delivering these high quality and lasting improvements to road users in the Helensburgh area.”
