A828 Connel Bridge

I didn't realise until I read the nearby plaque that this bridge used to be a rail bridge and was converted to a road bridge in the 60s when the rail line was closed.

A828-Loch Creran - Coppermine - 11506.jpg
A828 original route around Loch Creran

The road used to flood at the head of Loch Creran if there was a combination of heavy rain and high tide. Traffic was diverted around up the drive to a private house at Druimavuich. This used to be done by a temporary sign in the road but eventually these automatic signs were installed either side of the area that flooded. The detector seems to be in the base of a post in middle of that section. Everything was wind and solar powered - the sign was only illuminated as a vehicle approached.

A828 Connel Bridge - Coppermine - 9351.jpg
A828, Connel Bridge, Argyll

Driving over the Connel Bridge towards Fort William. Connel Bridge has had an odd history. From soon after its construction road vehicles were sometimes carried across on a railway wagon. In 1914 it was converted to allow road vehicles to drive over it, and for the next 50 years the bridge was used by both road and rail traffic. This stopped with the closure of the Ballachulish Branch Railway in 1966, and since then the bridge has been used exclusively by road traffic, controlled through the narrow roadway by traffic lights.

Illuminated chevrons

There is a bend on the A828 near Appin that has a history of a series of serious accidents

Vehicle activated illuminated chevrons have now been installed there, these flash in sequence when a vehicle approaches. They seem to be solar powered.

First time that I have seen these but sure someone will say they have been around for years
