Do re­pairs be­fore some­one is hurt

The Oban Times - - News -

THERE has still been noth­ing done to repair the lights on the foot­path that links Longs­dale Road with Ben­voullin Road in Oban. And there are no lights ei­ther on the nearby steep path be­tween Al­bert Road and Al­bert Lane.

Both of these paths are treach­er­ous and pitch black now. And both are well used by peo­ple tak­ing short­cuts through that part of town.

The first-men­tioned path has a steep drop- off and bro­ken fenc­ing so poses a gen­uine dan­ger.

How­ever, there is also an issue with per­sonal safety, per­haps es­pe­cially for women. Whether some­one is attacked or not is ir­rel­e­vant: peo­ple feel threat­ened by hav­ing to ne­go­ti­ate these paths in the dark.

Come on Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil. Carry out re­pairs be­fore some­one is in­jured – or worse.
