The Oban Times - - Front Page -

CAR­A­VANS and camper vans are still hav­ing prob­lems with a closed road in Oban as no signs are in place, Oban com­mu­nity coun­cil heard on Mon­day.

Com­mu­nity coun­cil­lor Ge­orge Berry said con­fu­sion reigned amongst visi­tors try­ing to use the route along Glen­shel­lach road, which was closed ear­lier in the year. Mr Berry said: ‘Con­fu­sion still reigns at boul­ders [ placed on the road to stop traf­fic us­ing the road] with peo­ple be­ing forced to un­hook car­a­vans to con­tinue their jour­ney. The car­a­van park still has no proper signs.’

Mr Berry raised con­cerns about the al­ter­na­tive route-iden­ti­fied for car­a­vans, via Glen­gal­lan Road, through the busy hous­ing es­tate be­hind Oban’s hos­pi­tal.

Coun­cil­lor Elaine Robert­son con­firmed signs for the new route to the car­a­van park were on or­der. The com­mu­nity coun­cil agreed to write to Ar­gyll and Bute coun­cil to raise con­cerns about the new route.
