TMS travelled north of the border recently to Loch Lomond, Scotland to undertake a Stage 1 Road Safety Audit on an ambitious scheme to widen a section of the A82 on Loch Lomond's western shore.
At present the A82 is signal controlled over a short section around a headland near the Pulpit Rock Monument that facilitates a single lane operation. The traffic signals were a temporary measure introduced some 30 years ago.
The 400m length of aims to relieve this constraint (and the congestion caused in peak holiday seasons) by widening the carriageway around the headland which will entail the construction of a 175m long viaduct over the Loch. The scheme will also incorporate some rick cutting into the headland and on line embankment widening.
This is another example of the wide range of road safety audit scheme types that TMS carry out.
