How much longer?

Argyllshire Advertiser - - LETTERS -

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.
