Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - Rachel Clark

An MSP is urg­ing mo­torists to plan ahead as road­works are set to be car­ried out on the A85.

Roseanna Cun­ning­ham, MSP for Perthshire South and Kin­ross-shire, is re­mind­ing driv­ers that work is sched­uled to com­mence on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 2, on the A85 be­tween St Fil­lans and Com­rie for main­te­nance and resur­fac­ing works.

It is ex­pected to take up to two weeks to com­plete.

Ms Cun­ning­ham said: “I un­der­stand that peo­ple can get frus­trated at the de­lays and in­con­ve­nience that road works can cause but some­times it is un­avoid­able and it means that es­sen­tial works are get­ting done, re­sult­ing in longer term ben­e­fit for us all.

“BEAR Scot­land have in­formed me that they in­tend car­ry­ing out the resur­fac­ing work from Oc­to­ber 2 un­til Oc­to­ber 13 from 7am un­til 7pm each day.

“The traf­fic man­age­ment sys­tem will in­volve a 10mph con­voy sys­tem dur­ing these hours and a 30mph speed limit at other times. This will im­pact on jour­ney times and I would urge any­one whose jour­neys might be af­fected to plan ahead.”
