Works to resurface 1.2km of the A85 at Arrivain began on Monday January 17, running a 10pmh convoy system between 7am and 7pm for nine days, subject to weather conditions.

Traffic management will be removed outwith working hours, however a temporary 30mph speed limit will remain in place as vehicles will be travelling over a temporary surface.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s Representative for the North West, said: ‘This surfacing project at Arrivain will greatly improve the quality and safety of this section of the A85 for road users.

‘The 10mph convoy system is essential for the safety of our teams and motorists, however we have taken steps to minimise disruption by removing traffic management outwith working hours.

‘We thank motorists for their patience in advance and would also encourage them to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information.’
