(17.30 Update: reopened) The A83 is is currently closed in both directions between Lochgilphead and Inveraray – because of an operation to recover a heavy goods vehicle.
Drivers are advised to expect a longer journey time, with diversions operating for westbound traffic via the A83 at Inveraray onto the A819 – then to the A85 following until Oban onto the A816 then rejoining the A83 after Lochgilphead.
The eastbound diversion is the reverse of this.
We understand that the incident is at Port Ann, just south of Lochgair, so local traffic ib both directions – for between Inveraray and Lochgair and between Lochgilphead and Achnaba – must be being allowed through the barriers.
15.00 Update:It is being said locally that it will be 17.00 before the road is reopened.
