Speed cut on stretch of A85

The Oban Times - - News -

THE SPEED limit will be re­duced from 60mph to 50mph on a stretch of the A85 be­tween Con­nel and Ach­na­cloich.

As re­ported at the Con­nel com­mu­nity coun­cil meet­ing on Septem­ber 8, Trans­port Scot­land will start work in the com­ing months to re­duce the speed on the 3.5-mile sec­tion of road, fol­low­ing con­cerns raised at pre­vi­ous meet­ings.

How­ever, Trans­port Scot­land said flash­ing 30mph signs at the west end of Con­nel would not be in­stalled, de­spite re­quests from the com­mu­nity coun­cil. In cor­re­spon­dence be­tween the com­mu­nity coun­cil and the Scot­tish gov­ern­ment agency, Trans­port Scot­land said re­search had shown there were other ar­eas in the coun­try where traf­fic speed­ing as it ap­proached a 30mph was more of a prob­lem, and they would be pri­ori­tised for new signs.
