DRIVERS are being warned to expect disruption on a major road near Loch Lomond later this month.

The A83 between Arrochar and Tarbet will have temporary traffic lights installed for nine days to allow road maintenance company BEAR Scotland to carry out drainage investigation works.

Work will be carried out on weekdays only from Wednesday, February 21 until Thursday, February 29 between 8.30am and 4.30pm.

Temporary traffic lights will be in place while the work is being carried out.

There will be no works on Saturday, February 24 or Sunday, February 25.

Ian Stewart from BEAR Scotland’s north west trunk road unit said: “These drainage investigation works through Tarbet village on the A83 will identify the condition of the drainage assets and give an indication if further works are required to improve the drainage system.

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as they can, and we thank the local community and road users for their patience in advance while we complete these works.

“We encourage motorists to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date travel information.”

Access through the worksite for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times and Pedestrians will still be able to use the footway.
