A85 East of Dunira

BEAR Scotland, acting on behalf of Transport Scotland, are planning to carry out essential resurfacing works, due to severe deterioration over the winter period, on the A85 East of Dunira.

The resurfacing works are programmed for construction from Monday 3 July to Thursday 6 July 2017, between 7am and 7pm. 

The road will remain open, however to ensure the safety of the workforce and members of the travelling public, it will be necessary for a convoy traffic management system to be implemented. The convoy system will be removed out with working hours.

Phase 3 of Railway Path

Thank you all for your patience and understanding while the latest section of the Railway Path is being constructed - we appreciate that the noise has been more of a nuisance than was expected. For various reasons, this section has been quite challenging but hopefully the worst is over!

We are hoping that the tunnel will soon be unlocked so that work can move more easily westwards along the track. As this is a live construction site, for health & safety reasons, please try to keep away from the area.

The route has been well cleared for long term safety and maintenance reasons and the cuttings & rock-faces have been thoroughly checked for any potential danger.

The route has also been cleared to a width, where possible, to allow for an 'equine grass strip' to run alongside the actual path. This is part of an incentive within the National Park Authority and Sustrans, to encourage further users to enjoy a safe and traffic free environment.

 

Please note; work will also soon be starting on one of the main access paths from the village to the Railway Path. This will run as a whin dust track from the end of Shoemakers Lane to the Football Playing Field, with a whin dust footpath branching off and zig-zagging up the embankment on to the Railway Path. (This path is also designed to be a direct link to the new Play Park, from both the village and the Railway Path.)
