Dozens of potholes plague Isle of Gigha roads
Dozens of potholes plague roads on the Isle of Gigha. Kintyre and the Islands Councillor Alastair Redman told the Courier this week: 'Complaints continue to roll in from my constituents on the Isle of Gigha about the condition of their road network, some of which is becoming almost impassable. ‘There are dozens of potholes along the stretch of road near the golf course. ‘Many islanders are concerned that by the end of the winter this situation might well be five times worse than present. ‘To make matters worse, it is now nine years since the road was last resurfaced.’ Gigha’s road network has a lot of heavy traffic including fish farm lorries and the First Milk tanker. Mr Redman added: ‘The Tarmac is seemingly 40mm thick at best in many areas and the roads are just not capable of taking any more punishment without proper maintenance. ‘I have contacted the council’s roads department. ‘The Isle of Gigha must not be treated like a backwater.’
