The Old Military Road used by traffic diverted off the A83 at the Rest and Be Thankful after it was hit by landslips is to close overnight tonight (Monday).
It was opened to traffic on Saturday while work was carried out to clear tonnes of debris from the A83.
However, roads company Bear Scotland said it would shut from 21:00 (7 o’clock) due to a forecast for heavy rain. The Met Office has issued weather warnings for thunderstorms.
Boulders as big as cars were among debris which fell on the A83 last week and led to closure of the road on which nearly £80 million has been spent over a long number of years.
Helensburgh woman, Argyll and Bute council leader Aileen Morton says it is time the Scottish government stopped “shilly shallying” and came up with the cash for a permanent solution.
