What the man and woman in the street think of the traf­fic dis­rup­tion

The Oban Times - - News -

Ronny Wil­son, 52, said: ‘Fort Wil­liam is a traf­fic-sen­si­tive area. Any­thing that could cre­ate grid­lock on the road should be done in the evening or dur­ing the night. We only have one road, and once that’s closed or back­logged, we are done for, es­pe­cially in the height of sum­mer.’

Morag Forsyth, 66, said: ‘I was try­ing to come out of the town when it was com­ing through, and it took me over an hour to get back to Caol from the cen­tre.’

Kate MacLel­lan, 67, said: ‘Bring­ing an ab­nor­mal load through the town in the mid­dle of the day is ab­so­lutely shock­ing. Surely it’s com­mon sense that they should have been given a spe­cific time when it wouldn’t be a traf­fic is­sue.’

An­gus Fran­cis, 27, said: ‘I don’t think it’s such a big deal. Wel­come to Scot­land. Be­ing stuck in traf­fic is nor­mal round here. Peo­ple have to run their busi­nesses, so if the lorry needed through, then it needed through.’
