A SECTION of the A83 between Clachan, Cairndow and Dunderave is set to be closed for a week to allow overnight roadworks from Sunday February 22.
The work, on a section of the trunk road between Drishaig and Dunderave Castle, will involve resurfacing and drainage improvements.
A new section of safety barrier will also be introduced to the Loch Fyne-side verge to improve road safety.
The £180,000 project is being undertaken by BEAR Scotland on behalf of Transport Scotland.
The road will be closed for the work to be carried out between 8.30pm and 5am each night from Sunday February 22 until Friday February 27.
In a statement, BEAR Scotland said that the reason for closing the carriageway during these hours is to minimise the impact on daytime and weekend traffic.
The statement continued: "The working hours have also been programmed around the West Coast Motors and Citylink bus services in order to minimise delay to commuters.
"Due to the narrow road widths an overnight road closure is required to ensure the safety of road workers and motorists with an official diversion route in place via the A82, A85 and A819."
Waiting vehicles will be allowed to pass through the works at approximately hourly intervals when it is safe to do so.
A 30mph speed limit will be in place outwith the working hours.
Commenting on the works, Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland's north west unit representative said: "We have planned these improvement works carefully and made every effort to keep disruption to a minimum for motorists.
"Motorists are encouraged to plan their journeys in advance, check the Traffic Scotland website for up to date information and to allow extra time for travel during this period."
