Bus shel­ters needed

The Oban Times - - DISTRICT NEWS -

Reg­u­lar read­ers may re­call that last sum­mer I wrote lament­ing the lack of a bus ser­vice be­tween Oban town cen­tre and Gana­van on Sun­days.

Now I have been con­tacted by a correspondent, who wishes to re­main anony­mous, about a sim­i­lar prob­lem.

The let­ter-writer says: ‘There are no bus shel­ters any­where on the way from Oban sta­tion to the war memo­rial and Gana­van.

‘And when you have com­pleted a walk to Gana­van, the toi­lets are shut.

‘First, peo­ple are be­ing en­cour­aged to keep fit and walk, but when they get to Gana­van there is no bus shel­ter in which to wait for the bus back, if it is rain­ing. It is the same all the way from Oban sta­tion: there is nowhere to rest out of the rain while wait­ing for a bus.

‘What we need, in the fol­low­ing or­der, is: 1: a bus shel­ter at Gana­van, 2: a bus shel­ter at the war memo­rial, 3: a bus shel­ter at Wee Gana­van (half way), 4: a bus stop at Dunol­lie Cas­tle.

‘We have waited years for the coun­cil to give us some shel­ter on that road. What a dif­fer­ence it would make.’

What about it, Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil?
