Joining forces to fix roads
ARGYLL and Bute Council is to join forces with other local authorities on a project aimed at improving roads maintenance.
The deal will see eight councils work together and could include sharing staff, equipment and properties.
The aim is to use shared resources to enhance the council’s repair and maintenance service for the benefit of local residents, businesses and visitors, and to reduce costs.
It is to be called the Northern Roads Collaboration Forum and will include Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, Angus, Comharlie nan Eilean Siar and Moray councils.
