A section of the A82 from Loch Lomond is set to be closed for five nights this month to allow for essential works. 

BEAR Scotland will carry out carriageway resurfacing works on the trunk road between Tarbert and Crianlarich. 

The works are scheduled from Sunday 23rd of May for five nights. They will be carried out between 8pm and 5am each night, with no work planned for Friday and Saturday nights. 

Due to restricted road widths, the A82 will be closed in both directions. 

A signed diversion route will be in place via the A83, A819, A85, but motorists will need to add 30 miles and approximately 55 to 60 minutes to their journey. 

During the day, the A82 will be re-opened with a 30mph speed limit in some areas, while access for emergency services will be maintained at all times.
