- What is the route from the Gamble Steps to the railhead?
- We cannot compromise the staff concerned by trying to speak to them – they are still council employees.
If there are other responsibilities in their job descriptions, they might form the basis for whatever redeployment may be in the frame, should that be acceptable.
We are aware that the Council told the Helensburgh Advertiser that there were no planned redundancies, with the men receiving their redundancy notices on the heels of that statement.
This can safely be read as the cowardly action of a paranoid council culture, knowing it would get hammered for these job losses but realistically having little alternative.
We thought about the Waverley of course – but it visits Kilcreggan very seldom and would not make a job.
As for maintenance, these days, with the unmanned piers which are the majority, maintenance will be done by a team sent in following a periodic inspection.
The issue here is the length of the perid.
CalMac have been having real difficulties with the Craignure jetty on Mull, which is council owned and whch is in a bad way.
