A85 Crieff

Overnight improvements begin on Sunday 8 July for five nights


Motorists using the A85 through Crieff are to benefit from an improved road surface as £130,000 worth of surfacing works are carried out from Sunday night. 

The overnight resurfacing will involve carrying out repairs to sections of the A85 along a kilometre-long section of the A85, creating a smoother and safer road surface.

The project is set to begin on Sunday 8 July and is expected to take five nights to complete, finishing on the morning of Friday 13 July. The resurfacing will be carried out between 7pm and 7am each night. 

The road will remain open throughout the improvements, however to keep road workers as well motorists safe a 10mph convoy system will be in place during the improvements.  This will be removed outside of working hours however road users are urged to proceed with caution as they will be travelling on a temporary road surface.  

The works have been programmed to take place overnight to minimise disruption to road users, as well as to reduce the impact to members of the public and local businesses.   The project has been structured so that noisy operations will be completed before 11pm to further reduce disruption.  

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “These essential resurfacing works will upgrade the existing road surface through the top end of Crieff, greatly improving the safety for road users.

“The traffic management arrangements are necessary to keep everyone safe during the project, however our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.

“We’ve planned the project to minimise disruption as much as we can by having the surfacing repairs take place overnight, as well as taking steps to ensure that any of our nosier operations are carried out before 11pm to further reduce any impact. 

“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.”
