Trunk road operator, BEAR has warned drivers to be cautious on the road after a Met Office warning of heavy rain is forecast.

After a road closure on the A82 earlier today with traffic reduced to one lane, a spokeswoman for the company said more rain was expected to continue later and may lead to difficult driving conditions.

The spokeswoman said: “We are currently working with Police Scotland to address flooding on the A82 near Stornaba, north of Spean Bridge.

"The road was temporarily closed for safety, however one lane of the A82 has reopened and traffic is being managed safely past the area.

“A Met Office yellow warning for heavy rain is in place until 3pm tomorrow (Wednesday).

“Additional teams are patrolling the A82 and other routes across the north west today to respond to any issues of flooding and help keep traffic moving.

"Our 24/7 control room team are also monitoring conditions and helping to coordinate our teams on the ground.

“We encourage all road users to slow down, drive to conditions and take care if heading out.”
