Do repairs before someone is hurt
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.
