A82 Crianlarich Bypass

Details

Project Summary: 
A new bypass is currently being constructed at Crianlarich, where the A82 and A85 meet to tackle the delays experienced by road users during the busy tourist season. Construction will take approximately a year and is expected to be completed during Summer 2014.

What's involved?
The Crianlarich Bypass will encompass a new 1.3km single two-lane carriageway road to the west of the village, allowing A82 road users to avoid low bridges. The majority of the work will take place adjacent to the existing  A82, so delays due to construction should be minimal.

Project benefits
The bypass will remove the significant delays which occur at the existing A85/A82 priority junction.

Status
