Turn­ing cir­cle too small and buses can’t use it

The Oban Times - - News -

PAR­ENTS and chil­dren from Can­talina Av­enue in Oban want to catch a bus home to their ‘hill­side houses’, but a turn­ing cir­cle is made to the wrong stan­dard and doesn’t al­low­ing ve­hi­cles to turn around.

Lil­lias Grant, of Glen­gal­lon, asked coun­cil­lors to get the mat­ter sorted out.

She said: ‘Our new hous­ing area is as high as you can get in Oban. But there are no buses as they can­not turn around at the top of the road. The way along the top road was much eas­ier for peo­ple to get along with bug­gies and shop­ping, but that has now been blocked off as well.’

Coun­cil­lor Roddy McCuish said in ex­pla­na­tion: ‘The turn­ing cir­cle was re­quired as part of plan­ning. The turn­ing cir­cle has been built in hard core and it needs to be in Tar­mac. Leave that one with me and I will speak to the con­trac­tors.’
