[10.00 update below] Our first check at 07.50 shows Transport Scotland are no longer warning of increased landslide risk on the A83 at Rest and Be Thankful – but we cannot yet be sure that this is accurate.
At 02.10 the warning was in place. Since then there has been more rain in the night and there is more at the moment, which would suggest that the area may not yet have been cleared of risk.
The rush hour traffic notices are now listing on the Current Incidents page on the Traffic Scotland website and it may be that, as before and as we logged yesterday, these somehow displace the A83 warning until later, making the situation seem deceptively safe.
If this is the case, it is a malfunction that puts the driving public at increased risk.
Update 10.00: We have kept a constant check on the Traffic Scotland and while the rush hour traffic notices have now gone, the A83 landslide risk warning notice has not returned. We emailed to ask for an accurate position statement but have not yet had a response – understandable since our official contact is a busy man.
It seems safe to assume that the road is not now subject to risk alerts
