Spean Bridge, Roy Bridge and Achnacarry
SPEAN Bridge, Roy Bridge and Achnacarry Community Council met for its first meeting of 2017 on Tuesday January 10. Items discussed at the meeting included: The signs the community council had requested some months ago for adjacent to the Ferguson log yard have now been erected.
An offer to have a Transport Scotland official attend a future community council meeting to discuss road safety was accepted.
Emergency culvert replacement work on the A86 at both sides of Laggan will mean the trunk road will be closed from 7pm to 7am next week, beginning Monday January 16.
The damaged road sign at the entrance to Spean Bridge on the A86 will be referred to BEAR.
Sergeant Andy Cooper reported that the police locally had a fairly busy time over the festive season, although there was nothing of note in the area, however the speeding campaign continues at Spean Bridge and Roy Bridge. Drink driving offences in the area were probably the lowest in recent memory for this time of year.
There had been no call- outs for either the First Responders or the fire and rescue service in the last month.
Two defibrillators are now installed in Spean Bridge and Roy Bridge and training will be arranged shortly.
Fire safety visits will also start in the coming months.
