Roads con­cern on Is­lay

The Oban Times - - Community News -

IS­LAY res­i­dents raised the is­sue of roads and roads fund­ing at a meet­ing of their com­mu­nity coun­cil last month.

Com­mu­nity coun­cil­lors had con­tacted Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil in or­der to understand the for­mula be­ing used for the fund­ing of roads on Is­lay, but it was still await­ing a re­sponse.

Com­mu­nity coun­cil­lors noted that other roads had ben­e­fited from be­ing clas­si­fied as trunk roads due to the fund­ing be­ing al­lo­cated from the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment rather than from Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil.

Com­mu­nity coun­cil­lors also heard that nei­ther the bridge at Gle­negedale or the one on the ap­proach to Port Char­lotte had been re­paired but it was hoped they would be com­pleted by the end of 2015.

Com­mu­nity coun­cil­lors also ex­pressed con­cerns about trail­ers from ar­tic­u­lated wag­ons be­ing parked in in­ap­pro­pri­ate places such as Port Brae and adjacent to Buildbase which is now caus­ing fur­ther dam­age to the road sur­faces.
