Tunnel For Rest And Be Thankful Considered

TRANSPORT Scotland has held discussions with the Norwegian government to learn about constructing tunnels, as part of plans to provide a solution to a stretch of road in the Highlands plagued by landslips.
Last year, the government announced work was being progressed for a resilient route through Glen Croe to replace the key transport artery along the A83, known as the Rest and Be Thankful, writes Chris Tindall.
Transport Scotland has now invited five consultants to tender for the next stage of work, which involves designing a long-term solution at Glen Croe. Options include constructing new lengths of carriageway, viaducts, tunnels and debris flow shelters, as well as additional landslide mitigation work.
