Our roads still have us in for a bumpy ride
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.
