BEAR Scotland, acting on behalf of Transport Scotland, are proposing to carry out essential carriageway maintenance works on the A85 through Lochawe village. These works are programmed for construction between Tuesday 23rd April - Thursday 25th April and sunday 28th April under a night-time closure.
The work will be carried out each night between the hours of 7pm and 7am.
The A85 will be closed in both directions at Lochawe during these resurfacing works. A signed diversion route will be in place via the A828 and A82 trunk roads.
This diversion will be subject to a height restriction of 4.2 m at Connel Bridge. Vehicles in excess of this restriction are advised to plan an alternative route during the period of the works. Alternately, all vehicles will be held at the work site until they are able to pass through during amnesty periods ( 7:30PM, 8:30PM, 9:30PM, 11PM, 1AM, 3AM and 5AM )
Emergency services will be able to pass at all times.
The diversion route will add 30 miles or approx. 40 minutes to the road journey between Connel and Tyndrum
