Overturned lorry closes A85 in Argyll between Connel and Taynuilt

The A85 in Argyll has been closed between Connel and Taynuilt to allow for the removal of an overturned lorry.

Traffic Scotland said diversion routes had been put in place but these could add more than 80 miles and two hours to journeys in the area.

It said the operation to remove the lorry was expected to take a few hours.

The westbound diversion takes the A819 at Dalamally onto the A83, through Inverary, then the A816 to Oban. This works in reverse for eastbound traffic.
