How much longer?
Sir, On Saturday afternoon, September 2, yet another serious accident occurred at Strone Point, near Inveraray.
For some reason, details of any casualties have not been made known, nor has any report been made on television, but it is a fact the road was closed for seven hours, and whatever the circumstances, rumour had it as a fatal accident.
How much longer must it be before this corner is straightened out? Over the last 30 odd years there may have been many fatalities there and goodness knows how many injuries.
The suffering and anguish of families and friends of the victims must have been enormous, and the inconvenience to hundreds, if not thousands over the years to people re-routed – about 6070 miles in most instances – who were just heading home or whatever, very considerable indeed.
Please ‘powers that be’ do what is needed at Strone Point now.
I have said in a previous letter this must be one of the most dangerous corners in Scotland, and it is dangerous not just in the busy season, but all year round, for in the winter months ice affects this road too. Niall Iain MacLean, Inveraray.
