on so­lu­tions to wors­en­ing traf­fic dis­rup­tion in Oban

The Oban Times - - News -

Mar­ion Evans, 53, from Oban, said: ‘I have come from be­hind the hos­pi­tal to­day and there were no prob­lems with traf­fic, but I have no­ticed that the car park is very busy to­day. I had to cir­cle round twice. Some­times when you are com­ing out of here you al­most meet cars as the lights change quickly. The lights cre­ate a bot­tle­neck at peak times.’

Mr Twigg, 63, from Oban, said: ‘ The only com­plaint I have is with what used to be a round about at the sta­tion. All it takes is a bus to go passed and there’s no room.’

Mar­garet Wil­son, who is from Glas­gow, but comes up to Oban all the time, said: ‘I think the dif­fi­cult thing with Oban is you only have one way in and out. If there was another road it might help – a road that by­passed the front and led to the shops and Tesco.’

Stu­art Ker­rane, 52, from Swin­don, said: ‘It’s quite busy to­day. When we got in to Oban that’s when we hit the traf­fic. It was pretty bad. It took us about 30 min­utes to get through town and to get parked. ‘ You can’t re­ally do much in a town to fix it. It’s just the way it’s built.’

Campbell Files, 49, from Oban, said: ‘ The traf­fic is rub­bish. It’s con­gested all the time. I think if they put two more round­abouts that would help. If they took away the car park next to the fac­tory shop and made a round­about and if they also put one at the high school. The money spend on the pave­ments could have been bet­ter spent and put to­wards the roads.’
