Emergency repairs are being carried out on one of Perth’s main roads after part of the surface collapsed.
Engineers were called out to Isla Road on Wednesday evening following reports of a massive pothole.
A spokeswoman from Perth and Kinross Council confirmed that the issued related to a damaged sewer and water main, which has washed out part of the carriageway between the culvert and road surface.
She said: “Scottish Water has arranged for contractors to carry out repairs.
“It is anticipated that the affected section of road may reopen on Friday evening depending on the progress of repairs.”
A short 60m section of the A93 at Isla Road has been closed to allow work to take place.
An emergency diversion is in place and traffic travelling southbound can access the A93 at Old Scone via Scone Brae, Stormont Road, A94 Perth Road, Scone, Scone Road in Perth, Pitcullen Crescent and Strathmore Street.
Those travelling northbound should follow the A94 Strathmore Street, Pitcullen Crescent and Scone Road in Perth, Perth Road and Stormont Road in Scone, accessing the A93 at Old Scone via Scone Brae.
A formal signed diversion for HGVs was also put in place to avoid smaller side roads.
