Roadworks which were scheduled to start tonight in Perthshire have been cancelled at the last-minute.
BEAR Scotland made the announcement this afternoon ahead of works that were planned on the A85 east of Tibbermore.
Workers were expected to start from 7pm this evening, with road resurfacing works anticipated to conclude by Thursday morning along a 560 meter stretch of the road.
A spokesman for BEAR Scotland advised the works have now been rescheduled due to “operational reasons”.
Work is now set to start on Thursday 22 July and won’t be completed until the following week on Wednesday 28 July.
All works remain scheduled between 7pm and 7am when the 10mph convoy system will be in place, as a temporary 30mph system during daytime travel.

“Traffic management will remain the same as originally planned, a 10mph convoy system will be in place between 7pm and 7am each night. All traffic management will be removed during the daytime.”
