A82 Stoneymollan Roundabout improvements to commence

7 January 2014

Local residents and motorists using the A82 are set to benefit from new enhancements to Stoneymollan Roundabout, Balloch beginning Monday 13 January.

Scotland TranServ, the operating company for south west Scotland’s roads, on behalf of Transport Scotland will carry out the works which will last approximately eight weeks.

The ‘Gateway to the Highlands’ will see improvements to the drainage, landscape and the ‘Flying Geese’ landmark which will be infilled and painted white. Seasonal flowers and trees will be planted and a maintenance access road will be created to complete the project.

Russell Rennie, Scotland TranServ’s contract director explains:

“Scotland TranServ is delighted to work in partnership with the National Park to deliver this exciting project.

“The planned improvements will give the roundabout a much needed facelift benefiting road users, local residents and visitors to the area for years to come.”

Temporary traffic management will consist of lane closures on the approaches to the roundabout and the nearside lane on the roundabout. This traffic management will be in place continuously throughout January from 6:00pm on the Sunday until 3:30pm each Friday afternoon. The traffic management will be removed in early February while the white geese are being refurbished and then reinstated during early March for the remainder of the works.

The layby on the north bound approach to the site will be closed throughout and advanced warning signs will be in place to alert motorists to the works.

Scotland TranServ will work closely with Transport Scotland and the National Park throughout the project to ensure the enhancements meet local expectations.
