All go on the A82 – Revamp for roads

Two further upgrade schemes on the A82 have moved a step closer.

Transport Scotland has published a shortlist for the £5.5m Crianlarich Bypass construction contract and at the same time announced a £2m design contract for the 16 km Tarbet to Inverarnan scheme.
Balfour Beatty, John Paul Construction, RJ McLeod, I&H Brown and Graham Construction have been invited to bid for the Crianlarich contract, with work expected to start soon.
In addition, a Halcrow Fairhurst Joint Venture is to start shaping the Tarbet to Inverarnan upgrade. Design work is expected to take two years.
