Rub­ble, rub­ble, toil and trou­ble

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - OPINION -

I’m be­gin­ning to won­der if the Rest and be Thank­ful stretch of the A83 in Ar­gyll should be re­named Don’t Bother Try­ing, it’s Shut Again given the amount of times it is closed due to se­vere weather-re­lated land­slips and rock falls.

SNP MP Bren­dan O’hara, whose fed-up con­stituents reg­u­larly en­dure 60-mile de­tours due to the clo­sures, would be more than thank­ful if the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment per­ma­nently blasted the prob­lem away.

Quite rightly, they are de­mand­ing more in­vest­ment.

Sadly, un­til that day, or at least un­til Bear Scot­land man­age to re­move the es­ti­mated 2,500 tonnes of de­bris and boul­ders dan­ger­ously loom­ing over the road, they’ll all just have to grin and bear it.
