Roads concern on Islay
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.
