Tworoad­sstill blocked­bysnow

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Two hill roads in Perthshire are still blocked by snow de­spite it be­ing the sec­ond half of April.

Mo­torists were com­plain­ing yes­ter­day that the in­fa­mous Ken­more to Glen­quaich road is still closed be­cause of snow, and that there is no warn­ing sign on the as­sent from Ken­more to tell driv­ers they will have to turn back.

The Glen­quaich road link­ing Ken­more to Amul­ree is a favourite for ad­ven­ture driv­ers be­cause of blind curves and hair­pin switch­backs that lead in over the moun­tains.

But win­ter has still not lost its grip and meet­ings are due to be held by Ken­more Com­mu­nity Coun­cil with PKC and the po­lice re­gard­ing sig­nage and this sin­gle track road.

Across Loch Tay, the as­sent to Ben Law­ers has been blocked for two weeks due to drift­ing snow mak­ing a big bar­rier over the un­clas­si­fied road over to Glen­lyon.

Perth and Kin­ross Coun­cil is aware of the haz­ard and has placed road closed signs at both ends of the high al­ti­tude pass - which five years ago had two Ger­man cam­per van teens stranded in the area for five weeks wait­ing for a thaw.
