The A82 is a road in Scotland that runs from Glasgow to Inverness by way of Fort William.
The Great Western Road has been described by Tam Galbraith as "the most noble entry to any city in Europe." It approaches a freeflow junction with the A898 from Erskine Bridge, which since the completion of the M74 through the south of Glasgow is now the main signposted route from the south to Loch Lomond and eliminates the need for through traffic to travel along Great Western Road.
The road continues northwest as a high quality dual carriageway route through Dumbarton before running to the west of Alexandria and Bonhill on a bypass constructed in the late 1960s.
This section of road has a particularly extensive history, as a route through the moor was followed by Major Caulfeild, and a later route was constructed by Telford. The new road was constructed because Telford's road had continual problems with flooding around Loch Tulla.
Telford himself had proposed a completely alternative route, running to Spean Bridge via Loch Treig and Glen Spean.
The road narrows to less than 7.3 metres (24 ft) in places and causes significant problems for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs), which have to negotiate tight bends and the narrow carriageway width.
