We too were certain there would be more intelligent service schedule this year and are as disappointed as you are – angry even, at the wasted opportunity.
We do not know with whom the ‘community consultation’ took place but, for a start, it is inconceivable that Campbeltown’s local councillors would not have been party to any discussions.

- Oban South and the Isles to ready for by-election as Councillor Hall stands down
We have had it confirmed by Councillor McCuish that he does not intend to stand in the by-election in Oban South and the Isles.
Here’s a thought.
Supposing Councillors McCuish and Devon did stand down for re-election in this ward….

The emergency diversion route is always available to the emergency services, even when it is closed to other traffic.
It has been engineered with strategic lay-bys to allow both emergency vehicles and convoy traffic to use, snabling the fastest passage through by emergency services, even when a convoy is on the route.
During the working up period of the road, we watched a test usage scenario with convoy traffic going one way and emergency vehicles going the other way.
It seemed to work efficiently on that occasion, with discussions going on between both parties at appropriate points of conjunction.
The communications between the convoy leader and the emergency servces are obviuosly important.
