Our roads still have us in for a bumpy ride

The Oban Times - - News -

THERE has been a fair amount of com­ment and de­bate on the state of Ar­gyll and Bute roads af­ter they were branded the worst in Scot­land.

It is in­dis­putable that there are some very poor road sur­faces and there are many pot­holes.

Mat­ter have been made worse as a re­sult of the time of year: win­ter al­ways takes a greater toll on our roads.

How­ever, the coun­cil’s bud­get has been the vic­tim of aus­ter­ity, along with other de­part­ments that have been forced to re­duce spend­ing as fi­nan­cial con­straints tighten.

It looks like the bumpy ride is to be with us for some time to come.
