The Old Military Road (OMR) local diversion route at the A83 Rest and Be Thankful has opened to traffic this morning following a final inspection.

Work will continue today to improve conditions on the slope above the road following last week’s multiple landslides. This will be monitored throughout the day.

As a precaution, given the forecast for inclement weather on Tuesday October 16, the OMR will be closed at 6pm tonight (Monday) and a further inspection carried out at 8am tomorrow (Tuesday) to determine whether it can reopen.
