- Details for deliveries during w.c 11th March onwards to be confirmed
- The slow-moving convoy, including three long heavy load vehicles as well as support vehicles and a police escort, will travel between 20-40mph.
- Due to limited opportunities to overtake safely, delays along the route are possible however the convoy will stop to allow Southbound vehicles pass where safe to do so.
- Northbound traffic on the A713 may be temporarily stopped along the route where necessary.
- Adding extra time to journeys in both directions is advised.
