Road­works not be­fore time

The Oban Times - - Districts -

AT LAST the road sur­face through Taynuilt is to be re­paired.

The A85 through the vil­lage has been in a shock­ing con­di­tion – and de­te­ri­o­rat­ing – for a con­sid­er­able time.

Now BEAR Scot­land is fi­nally about to be­gin an up­grade. Work is sched­uled to start on Tues­day next week (April 18) and will mean clo­sures overnight while the resur­fac­ing is car­ried out.

I have no doubt there will be some driv­ers who bump their gums about the in­con­ve­nience caused by the clo­sures.

To them, I would say, the long-term gain is more than worth the short-term pain.

This stretch has been de­scribed as the worst road in Ar­gyll. It’s much worse than that.
