Hazard signs welcomed by drivers
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.
