Decision awaited on road to ski resorts
Bookmark and Share
Consultation has now ended on proposals to carry out improvements on the main road from Glasgow to the Highlands during the winter, something Scotland's ski industry has said could be bad news for those planning to head north in their ski boots.

The plan to improve the A82 by Loch Lomond will see a new viaduct built that juts out over the loch, replacing the Pulpit Rock traffic lights system, which allows traffic in just one direction at a time and can lead to tailbacks.

However, the Highways Agency plans to undertake the work next winter, which could disrupt access to ski resorts by forcing large diversions, Snowsport Scotland has warned.

It has argued the work should take place in autumn instead, noting Glencoe - which lies by the A82 - could be worst hit by such a move.

However, those looking to ski this winter will have no such problems, as there are no major works to be carried out.

Webcam pictures from the Scottish ski resorts today (November 8th) show snow on the mountains, indicating there should soon be a chance to hit the slopes.
