A MAJOR £1.5 million Argyll and Bute Council roadworks programme is nearing completion.

Surfacing improvements are being done and are scheduled to finish at the end of this month.

A number of areas of Argyll and Bute are benefiting, from Kintyre to Lorn, Lomond to Mull.

It is part of a wider Council capital roadworks programme, in which the Council is investing £3.6 million.

The work is ‘surface dressing’, which seals the road to stop water getting in and improve skid resistance. It involves covering the entire carriageway with a new surface.

Areas benefiting from the programme include:

Bute – the A844 at Marine Parade

Mull – Tobermory village and the B8073 from Calgary to Tobermory

Lorn – the A819 from Dalmally to Bovuy

Mid Argyll – the C38 at Kilmichael Glen, C39 at Crinan Harbour and the B841 at Bellanaoch

Islay – the A846 Low Road between Glenegedale aand Bowmore, and the C12 Cluanach to Cachliaidh

Cowal – the A880 at Blairmore, the A886 at Meechans Grave and the A815 at the junctions of the B836 and A880.

Kintyre – B842 Grogport, B8001 Gartavaich and B842 Carradale

Lomond – C69 Glen Douglas, C70 Glen Fruin and the B833 at Knockderry and Kilcreggan
