URGENT Access to Glenquey – 1st July to 23rd July 2019

Update 01/07/19 – access will be OK to Glenquey see post above

I passed Yetts O’Muckart this afternoon and noticed signs laid down by the side of the junction of the A91 and A823 saying that the road will be closed there from the 1st July until 23rd July.

A quick check on the TellMe  Scottish Government official notice site revealed the following notice from Perth and Kinross Council:

On 24/6/19 the Council made the above Order under Section 14 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 to temporarily prohibit all vehicles from driving, parking and/or loading on both sides of the A823 from the Duchally Road Junction to the Perth and Kinross Council Boundary near Yetts o’ Muckart a distance of 11.47 kilometres or thereby. Alternative route: A823 – A91 – A912 – A93 – A9(T). This applies from 1/7/19 for an estimated period of 3 weeks to permit carriageway resurfacing works. Should these works overrun the maximum duration in terms of this Order is 18 months. Pedestrian and emergency vehicle access to premises will be maintained.

Although these works cover a substantial section of road in pretty poor condition beyond the road to Glenquey some of the worst pavement conditions is between the reservoir and the A91 , it is likely that access may well be restricted. As the detour is huge I recommend that you check if you can access the road before buying a permit!

I will contact Perth and Kinross Council tomorrow to get an idea of the programme of works and how it will effect our access to Glenquey then report here asap
