Roadworks not before time
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.
