Transport Scotland appointed Fairhurst and our JV partners in June 2013 to provide design, investigative and environmental services for the A82 Tarbet to Inverarnan Upgrade.
The scheme comprises of 17km of new single carriageway trunk road and cycle track along the west side of Loch Lomond, forming part of the strategic link between central Scotland the north-west and islands . It supports economic links providing access to the many tourist and recreational areas located along the route.
The A82 is located within an area of outstanding and diverse landscapes, habitats and communities. There has been significant consultation with the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Authority as well as other statutory consultees. This has led to greater emphasis on developing design options that are visually and environmentally sympathetic to their surroundings.
The scheme will improve journey time reliability, reduce vehicle collisions and provide enhanced walking, wheeling and cycling facilities.
