Transport Scotland has announced that work on a £100,000 ground investigation on the A82 has got underway today that will see investigation undertaken at Glen Gloy and Altrua.
The work, being undertaken by Soil Engineering Geoservices, will take three weeks to complete and the details will be used for future improvements to the route and design of a new retaining wall at Altrua.
Transport Scotland has said that the contract includes four boreholes at Glen Gloy and a borehole and trial pit at Altrua.
“These two sets of ground investigation works will help us design future maintenance on these sections of the A82,” said Transport Scotland term maintenance contract Bear’s north west representative Eddie Ross.
“We have programmed these works with our specialist contractor to minimise disruption by avoiding the busy peak tourism months, however we would encourage motorists to plan ahead and allow extra time for journeys.”
