Thursday 2nd August to Friday 3rd August

BEAR Scotland, on behalf of Transport Scotland, are planning to carry out essential resurfacing works on the A83 Trunk Road just north of Bellochantuy. The resurfacing works are programmed to commence on Thursday 2nd August 2018 at 7pm, with completion anticipated by 7am Friday 3rd August 2018. Due to the restricted road widths within this section during resurfacing operations, the A83 will be closed in both directions over the extents of the works from 9pm – 7am. During these times traffic will be stacked at either end of the closure then escorted through the work when safe to do so. Operations carried out between 7pm and 9pm will be controlled using a convoy traffic management system and short duration STOP/STOP controls.
