The Scottish Ministers give notice that they have made the above Order under sections 2(1) and (2), 4(1) and 14(1)(b) and (4) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, temporarily prohibiting traffic on that length of A83 Tarbet – Lochgilphead – Campbeltown Trunk Road from the junction with the Machrihanish Airfield access road in a southeastwards direction along the A83 Trunk Road and Tarbert Road, Campbeltown then southwards along Millknowe Road, then eastwards along Aqualibrium Avenue, then southeastwards along Kinloch Road and Old Quay Street roundabout to its junction with the southeastbound carriageway of Hall Street, then southeastwards along Hall Street to its junction with New Quay Roundabout, Campbeltown, a distance of 5.2 kilometres or thereby.
The Order, which is required to facilitate the movement of large vehicles, will be in operation from 15 January 2019 until 15 April 2019. The prohibition on use will only have effect in relation to such part or parts of the length of road as indicated by appropriate traffic signs.
The Order does not apply to vehicles while being used in an emergency for fire brigade, ambulance, police or coastguard purposes; or any vehicle travelling under police escort or any vehicle being used to provide such an escort.
An alternative route for traffic during the prohibition is not required, as a rolling closure will be in effect and the moves are scheduled to take place after 22.00 hours and last approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes.
