A83 – Rest and Be Thankful – update

Clearance work continues at Rest and Be Thankful following landslide

The repair of damage to the A83 caused by a large landslip on Sunday morning is continuing.

A short section of embankment supporting the road was eroded due to large volumes of water and debris washing over the edge of the road. Engineers have designed a repair and that is being implemented.

Early indications are that the work to reopen should be completed around the middle of next week, subject to weather conditions.

The Old Military Road local diversion route is to remain in use overnight tonight. The route will be reviewed on a daily basis paying close attention to the weather forecast to see if it will remain safe to reopen overnight.
