Frus­tra­tion over bus shel­ter de­lay

The Oban Times - - News -

FRUS­TRA­TION is mount­ing in Fort Wil­liam over a long de­lay in re­plac­ing the health centre bus shel­ter.

A tem­po­rary shel­ter was erected at the site in Fe­bru­ary, af­ter the orig­i­nal was knocked down by a bus last July.

The Lochaber Times con­tacted Bid­wells to get an up­date on the sit­u­a­tion.

A spokesper­son for Bid­wells prop­erty con­sul­tants, which is act­ing on be­half of the owner of the land on which the shel­ter is sit­u­ated, said: ‘ We are acutely aware of the frus­tra­tion this has caused amongst bus pas­sen­gers. We have been bat­tling to get this is­sue re­solved for many months and have been faced with one ob­sta­cle af­ter an­other. We had hoped the new, be­spoke bus shel­ter would have been in­stalled by now but it has been de­layed by pro­tracted ne­go­ti­a­tions with other par­ties in­volved.

‘ We are as keen as the pas­sen­gers for a shel­ter to be erected as soon as pos­si­ble and we are do­ing all we can to progress the mat­ter.’
