A third crash on the A82 in just five days has shut a stretch of the busy route.

Drivers are facing long delays after the northbound and southbound carriageways were shut between Balloch and Arden.

Motorists are being advised to use an alternative route at this time.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: ‘Around 2.35pm, police received a report of a multi-vehicle crash on the A82 near Balloch. The road is closed between Stoneymollan Roundabout and Arden Roundabout and emergency services are on scene.’

This incident comes after two serious accidents at the weekend – one fatal.  A 31-year-old pedestrian was struck by a lorry at around 8.20am on Sunday south of Luss on the A82. Emergency services attended and the man was pronounced dead at the scene. Police are appealing for any information.

In the other crash on Saturday at around 3.20pm at the junction for Luss, a 77-year-old woman was left with life-threatening injuries. A 76-year-old man was seriously hurt in the same incident and taken to Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley. A 51-year-old man was also taken to hospital.
