The A83 Rest and be Thankful has opened round the clock to road users via the Old Military Road after a landslip occurred early on the morning of Thursday January 30.

Traffic is being controlled in a convoy system.

More than 1,000 tonnes of debris reached the carriageway, closing the A83 in both directions at 3am this morning.

The clear up operation has commenced and will continue into Friday. An update will be provided tomorrow (Friday) on the expected timescale for clearing the debris.

Ferry provider Western Ferries can also accommodate traffic. Up to date information available at www.western-ferries.co.uk by phone 01369 704452 or email enquiries@western-ferries.co.uk
