1,700 supporters for A85 petition
MORE than 1,700 people have signed a petition demanding the upgrade of the A85 Oban to Dunbeg road.
The petition asks for more double white lines along the road and for the speed limit to be assessed.
It was signed by 885 online supporters and by 821 people on one of the various hard copies positioned around town.
Sean MacIntyre, chairman of Dunbeg Community Council, who started the petition, said he was overwhelmed with the support and will now be handing it in to Transport Scotland and Argyll and Bute Council.
