Traffic has ground to virtual standstill on one of Perth’s main arterial routes due to a broken down lorry.
A livestock haulier vehicle has broken down in the outside lane of Dundee Road, beside the Isle of Skye Hotel, resulting in gridlocked traffic and a long queue of vehicles snaking back almost all the way to the slip road leading off the A90 Perth to Dundee road.
The incident happened around 7.25am.
A van driver, who was on his way into Perth, said: “Traffic is very busy at the moment. Usually it is ‘stop-start’ here but today there have been long delays.”
And another motorist commented: “I had to take a detour via the slip road off the Friarton Bridge up to the Broxden roundabout as the traffic was that bad. It’s horrendous.”
