Ferry passengers beware

In mainland Scotland, the A830 Mallaig to Fort William road is being upgraded. It is the final phase of works to double the single-track carriageway between Arisaig and Lochailort, about 5 miles or so. How long is this going to take? Answer below.

For reference, the A830 is an important link road for ferries to Skye and the Small Isles, which depart from Mallaig. It is of relevance for travellers to the Western Isles, who want to take a ferry from Uig, Skye. They're strongly advised to use the A82 from Fort William, then go up the A87 from Invergarry right through to Uig.
Anyone using the road to catch a ferry should take possible delays into consideration. The length of works suggests that all will be complete by early 2009.

I am grateful to Westword for bringing this to my and their readers' attention.
