4TH GENERATION TERM CONTRACT FOR MANAGEMENT AND MAINTENANCE OF THE SCOTTISH TRUNK ROAD NETWORK – NORTH WEST UNIT A828 BENDERLOCH PUFFIN CROSSING WORKS
BEAR Scotland, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will be carrying out works in relation to the installation of a Puffin Crossing on the A828 Trunk Road in Benderloch. The new signalised crossing is to replace the Zebra crossing currently in use in Benderloch. There is to be associated works including resurfacing, drainage improvements, reconstruction of footways and new road markings as part of this Road Safety scheme. Please find enclosed a location plan which details the works extents.
The works are programmed for construction from Monday 30th January for up to 4 weeks. The work will be carried out between the hours of 7am and 5pm each day, with no works planned for the weekend.
To ensure the safety of the workforce and members of the travelling public the carriageway will be under a single lane traffic management system controlled by temporary traffic lights for the majority of the works. A 10 mph convoy system will be implemented on 23rd February whilst the surfacing work is carried out, subject to any changes in the programme. The Zebra crossing in Benderloch village will not be in use for the period of the works and pedestrians are asked to take care when crossing the carriageway.
BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland would like to take this opportunity to thank the local community for their patience whilst these essential works are undertaken.
Should you require any further information, or wish to discuss these proposals further, please do not hesitate to contact Babuka Alief, Graduate Design Engineer, by email NWconsultation@bearscotland.co.uk or phone 0330 008 0590.
