BEAR Scotland, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will be undertaking essential drainage and culvert repairs on a
section of the A85 Trunk Road at Dunfallandy Cottage, West of Comrie. Please find enclosed location and
diversion drawing for geographical clarity.
The works are programmed for construction from Monday 18th to Thursday 21st April 2022 and will involve
localised drainage improvements and culvert replacement works. When the drainage improvement works are
being undertaken, the Trunk Road will remain open. However, to ensure the safety of our workforce and members
of the public, a traffic management system incorporating lane closures with temporary traffic signals will be
implemented. The drainage improvement works will be undertaken on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th March,
between 7am and 7pm each day.
Due to the nature of the culvert replacement works, it will be necessary to close the A85 Trunk Road in both
directions to ensure the safety of our workforce and members of the public, which is of paramount importance.
These works are currently programmed to be undertaken overnight on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st April
(two nights), between 8pm and 6am each night. Out with working hours it may be necessary to implement a traffic
management system incorporating lane closures with temporary traffic signals.
During the closure period, a signed, diversion route will be available via the A85 to Lochearnhead, A84 to Doune,
A820 to Stockbridge, A9 to Auchterarder, A823 and A822 to Crieff and A85 to Comrie, and vice versa.
The proposed works programme is as follows
|Location of works||Duration||Work Hours||Traffic Management|
|A85 West of Comrie Drainage Improvements||Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th April 2022 (two days)||7am to 7pm||Daytime lane closures with temporary traffic signals|
|A85 West of Comrie Culvert Replacement||Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st April 2022 (two nights)||8 pm to 6 am||Full road closure with diversion. (Lane closure with temporary traffic signals out with working hours)|
Access through the works site for emergency services will be maintained at all times.
We understand that road closures of this nature will be disruptive and have planned the road closure works
overnight when traffic flows are lower, to reduce the impact of the works. BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland
wish to thank the local communities in advance for their patience during these essential works.
