Haz­ard signs wel­comed by drivers

The Oban Times - - News -

THE IN­STAL­LA­TION of haz­ard signs near a ‘no­to­ri­ous’ round­about in Fort Wil­liam has been well re­ceived by mo­torists.

Last Thurs­day (Jan­uary 12) The Oban Times re­ported con­cerns raised by drivers re­gard­ing the round­about at Mor­risons su­per­mar­ket af­ter a car nearly came off the road be­cause of a slippy sur­face. Signs were in place later that day. Cal­lum MacPhee said he had been fight­ing for some­thing to be done on the road for more than a year and while he was pleased to see some progress had been made, he still hopes more will be done.

Mr MacPhee said: ‘I’ve com­plained sev­eral times about this and noth­ing has been done. So af­ter see­ing Kelly’s warn­ing [on Face­book] and all the com­ments of cars slid­ing, I con­tacted the lo­cal MP and to my sur­prise there are now ‘road slippy’ signs at all ap­proaches to the round­about and hope­fully an anti-skid sur­face is go­ing to be laid.’

BEAR Scot­land, which erected the signs, told The Oban Times an in­ves­ti­ga­tion to im­prove the sur­face grip of the round­abouts is be­ing made prior to im­prove­ments early in the next fi­nan­cial year.
