A83 Rest and be Thankful Resurfacing
Sunday 10th - Friday 15th March 2019


BEAR Scotland, acting on behalf of Transport Scotland, are proposing to carry out essential carriageway maintenance works on the A83 Trunk Road, through Rest and Be Thankful. The resurfacing works are provisionally programmed for construction from Sunday 10th March 2019 for 4 nights, between the hours of 8pm to 5am. The works will involve resurfacing of the westbound carriageway lane through the ongoing landslide mitigation project for a length of approximately 540 metres.

To ensure the safety of the workforce and members of the travelling public the carriageway will be subject to a road closure for the duration of the works. Road users are advised to use the approved diversion route during the working hours which will add approximately 30 minutes onto journey times when travelling between Tarbert and Inveraray. Access for emergency vehicles will be available at all times during the works.

Out with the working hours the A83 will remain open to traffic however, it is necessary for temporary traffic signals and 30mph speed restriction to be in place to operate a single lane closure due to the ongoing landslide mitigation project.

BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland wish to thank road users and the community for their patience during these essential works.
