The Oban Times - - Front Page -

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.
