Road will close each night from 7pm to 6am

Argyll and Bute Council will be carrying out essential maintenance work along the A816 between Kintraw Farm and Salachery each night from Monday 29th August to Friday 2nd September.

The road will be closed during the works to protect the safety of road workers – the narrowness of the carriageway will restrict the ability of traffic to safely pass the laying equipment.

Access will be maintained for emergency vehicles.

The diversion will be via the A819 Dalmally to Inveraray road.

The works will cost in the region of £80,000 and will see the road surface being planed out and replaced.

This is part of the council’s £27million investment in Argyll and Bute’s road network over the past four years. The successful investment project has seen a mix of resurfacing work, patching, surface dressing and in-situ surface recycling throughout the council area.

Since the start of the roads capital programme almost 400 miles of roads have been upgraded, with an overall improvement of 3%; one of the fastest improving road networks in Scotland.

Almost 90% of Argyll and Bute’s ‘A’ class roads are now in good or fair condition.
