A83 hazard warning lifted

While the Met office severe weather warning remains for Argyll and the Isles today and tomorrow (5th and 6th July) the particular threat of downpours in the Rest and Be Thankful area seems to have passed. Transport Scotland have removed the landslide hazard warning they issued yesterday for that section of the A83.

  1. So now our travel plans are purely at the whim of every passing rain cloud. Great. Remind me, this IS the 21st century, right?

    • Surely you don’t expect to be able to drive on road managed by Transport Scotland when it is wet do you?

      We made that mistake in Dunoon, Transport Scotland forgot to specify that the ferries had to be able to sail when it was windy!

      At least there is a warning of a problem on the A83. When the passenger ferry is cancelled in Dunoon the fancy electronic sign just says “sailing to timetable”.

      Even if the boats were on, imagine you are a tourist, when exactly is the next sailing on the time table? In Portavadie the sign (which looks very similar to the one in Dunoon) at least tells you when the next sailing is.
