Work to make safe an area of hillside that slipped and blocked a trunk road in Argyll earlier this year is moving ahead.
The A83 Tarbet to Campbeltown road was blocked on January 29 when 1,000 tonnes of debris fell onto the carriageway at the Rest and Be Thankful.
An emergency alternative route, the Old Military Road, was put in place helping motorists avoid a lengthy diversion while the clear up operation took place.
While heeding social distancing and all current NHS and government health advice, a team of experts has been carrying out extensive operations to stabilise the slope and construct a back-up catch-pit.
Led by Forestry and Land Scotland, the team includes the geotechnical engineers and consultants involved in resilience works elsewhere on the Rest, plus partners Transport Scotland and BEAR.
FLS planning manager, John Hair, said: “We’re channelling a lot of resources into this and are working on it seven days a week to make this area safe.
“More than 1000 tonnes of debris landed on the road back in January.
“It took a lot of clearing up but that loss of material from the hillside presented other problems as well.
“We’re currently underpinning a 50 metre (164ft) stretch of the forest road to strengthen it and prevent any further major collapse.
“The landslip channel has been stabilised but, in the event of future extreme weather events potentially affecting this part of the slope, we are constructing a catch pit that aims to prevent debris from reaching the road surface.
“Traffic management will be in place for approximately a further two weeks to allow us to complete the catch pit.
“We will be working on stabilising the forest road for another four weeks after that but will not require any more traffic management.”
Currently only one lane of the carriageway is in use.
