A82 Gavinburn Resurfacing – Scotland Transerv

A82 Gavinburn Resurfacing

As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, Scotland TranServ will resurface the A82 Northbound between Gavinburn and Dunglass Roundabout.

The health and safety of our workers and subcontractors is of the utmost importance to Scotland TranServ. Our workers, and those working on our behalf, will follow strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government advice, as part of our steps to return safely to work.

This essential maintenance scheme is one of a number of such projects that have been identified as vital to maintaining the integrity and safety of the trunk road network.

Brendan O’Sullivan, Scotland TranServ’s Network Area Manager said:

“The A82 is an essential route connecting Glasgow and the Central Belt with Dumbarton, Loch Lomond and the North. As such it is used by emergency services, freight, retail and delivery traffic as part of their essential working.

“Many new working practices have been implemented across our workforce and those of our contractors and suppliers in the delivery of our future resurfacing programmes. Thorough risk assessments have been carried out as we take a lead in the delivery of trunk road maintenance.

“It is important that we continue resurfacing works in order to maintain road safety. Traffic volumes currently remain low, in line with government advice, and therefore any such impact on the travelling public will also remain low at this time.

“Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, would like to take this opportunity to thank drivers for making only essential journeys over the last few months, and playing their part in protecting the country’s key workers.”

With the requirement of additional space due to increased physical distancing, it will be necessary to close this section of the northbound carriageway of the A82 over the following nights:

  • 8pm on Wednesday 8th until 6am on Thursday 9th July
  • 8pm on Thursday 9th until 6am on Friday 10th July

Traffic management will only be implemented once vehicle volumes are sufficiently low. Drivers are asked to allow plenty of additional time for essential overnight journeys, with a 50-minute diversion route in place.

Additional measures have been put in place to allow emergency service vehicle access, however no extra requirements have been made for windfarm traffic. Motorists can find live trunk road information by visiting trafficscotland.org or by following @trafficscotland on Twitter.
