DRIVERS in Helensburgh are being warned to prepare for three days of disruption on the A82 between Dumbarton and Glasgow.

Works to install a new high voltage cable and substation will take place on the A82 Dumbarton Road at Milton Brae between Monday, June 10 and Thursday, June 13.

Scottish Power Energy Networks says it has planned the works in conjunction with West Dunbartonshire Council in an aim to keep disruption to a minimum.

However temporary traffic restrictions will be in place for the duration of the works, including lane closures on the A82.

This means delays are likely and journey times could be longer during this time.

There will be lane closures and traffic management in place during this period and delays are expected.

There will be periods where there are no operations onsite, but traffic management will still be in place to allow for the curing of tar.

lbert Santandreu, SP Energy Networks’ head of delivery said: “These works will ensure we continue to support the move to cleaner and greener transport and travel across the region. 

“We will be pulling out all the stops, in conjunction with our contractor Spratt Multi Utility, to safely complete the works as quickly as possible, but we do need to ensure sufficient time for the likes of the drying and curing of tar – once the works are complete – before the lanes can be reopened.

“We fully recognise that the location of the works – along a busy commuter route – will cause some disruption and inconvenience.

"We’re sorry for any disruption and thank people in advance for their patience and cooperation in allowing extra time for their journeys.”
