Spean Bridge

The Oban Times - - DISTRICTS -

SPEAN BRIDGE, Roy Bridge and Ach­nacarry Com­mu­nity Coun­cil met last Tuesday (Fe­bru­ary 1) and among the is­sues dis­cussed were:

Trans­port Scot­land/ BEAR: Five sets of planned road­works on the A82 were re­ported to the meet­ing, but BEAR had nei­ther rec­ti­fied the drain cover and hedge cut­ting in Roy Bridge nor replied to the sec­re­tary’s en­quiry. The chair­man will high­light the con­tin­ued is­sues with BEAR at his meet­ing with Trans­port Scot­land.

Highland Coun­cil: Highland Coun­cil has filled in some pot­holes in Spean Bridge, but the sec­re­tary has writ­ten to them about the col­lapsed cul­vert in a gar­den in Clunes.

Ru­ral tele­phone boxes: There has still been no re­sponse from ei­ther BT or Highland Coun­cil to ob­jec­tions to the clo­sure of the area's tele­phone boxes.

LEADER: Kil­moni­vaig Par­ish Church’s LEADER ap­pli­ca­tion for a sig­nif­i­cant re­fur­bish­ment and up­grade of its church hall has been ap­proved. The to­tal costs will be £ 50,760 with LEADER con­tribut­ing 50 per cent.

Trans­port Fo­rum: the sec­re­tary had at­tended the Trans­port Fo­rum Meet­ing. Highland Coun­cil was still un­able to an­nounce who had been suc­cess­ful in the pub­lic trans­port con­tracts for the next five years and that in turn was in­flu­enc­ing the op­er­a­tor’s de­ci­sions about im­prov­ing its fleet.
