Access to Glenquey – A823 closed at Glendevon village – REOPENED 20-10-20

I understand that the A823 reopened on Thursday (20th August) evening providing access to Glenquey from the north. A temporary bridge has been installed over the failed bridge.

Please note following the tremendous overnight storms (Tuesday 11th August Wednesday 12th August) the A823 is closed just west of Glendevon village. The Creich Burn has washed away the culvert making the road impassable.

There are a mass of road closed signs at the junction at Yetts of Muckhart, which have caused some confusion.

Access to Glenquey from the south – remains as normal, just go around the sign

Access to Glenquey from the north – unfortunately you will need to divert via Perth-M90-Milnathort-A91-Yetts of Muckhart. There are no road closure signs on the Dunning road, but I traveled back that way on Friday only to meet a Police Road Closed sign just above the Devon. The road here is in a shocking condition (partially washed away by the Glendy Burn) and is really not recommended. Why there aren’t road closed signs in Dunning is a mystery

I understand that Perth & Kinross Council will be installing a temporary “bailey” bridge on the A823 sometime later next week (there is already one installed on the Dunning Glen road) and the crossing will be controlled by traffic lights
