A83 delays –warning of large load

MOTORISTS using the A83 between Machrihanish and Lochgilphead on Tuesday August 14 have been advised to allow extra time for their journey.

A spokeswoman for Argyll and Bute Council said:‘A large,slow-moving vehicle will be leaving RAF Machrihanish around 9am to travel north along the A83 to Lochgilphead. It will then travel to Salachary,north of Kilmartin,using the A816. The vehicle will be escorted by the police and it will be travelling for approximately five hours.

‘Other road users are likely to experience delays of up to 20 minutes,although overtaking opportunities will be made available. Allowing extra time for your journey on Tuesday August 14 is advisable.’

A83 to reopen Friday August 3 at 7pm

The A83 at the Rest and Be Thankful was due to reopen at 7pm on Friday August 3 2012.
The road had closed on Wednesday August 1 following a landslide around 4pm in the afternoon and further slides over night which left around 1,000 tonnes of debris on the carriageway.
Scotland Transerv spent much of Friday clearing the debris.
The site was also visited by Alex Neil,Scottish Cabinet secretary for Infrastructure and Capital Investment.
He met with local business owners,community representatives and councillors to discuss what could be done to reduce the risk of disruption in the future and promised a task force would be set up to oversee progress.
