Pri­or­ity route

The Arran Banner - - Letters -

Sir, Be­ing a sim­ple and naive per­son, I read of the prepa­ra­tion for win­ter on Ar­ran roads by NAC and was im­me­di­ately heart­ened by the thought that the higher parts of the String Road would, on the oc­ca­sion of snow cov­er­ing the sur­face, be treated as a pri­or­ity route, in par­tic­u­lar be­tween the hours of 8.30am and 9pm when there is a sig­nif­i­cant amount of traf­fic that in­cludes a school bus.

This is the time when pre­vi­ously the safety of mo­torists and pas­sen­gers has been ne­glected or ig­nored. There­fore no longer will the cry of ‘where is the grit­ter’ echo in the snow cov­ered hills and the traf­fic strewn roads. Oh well, I can only dream.

Mr J Ste­wart, Black­wa­ter­foot.
