Comment posted A83 closed in both directions by Robert Wakeham.
Now open again, apparently.

- One advantage of a fixed link would be that any government would find it difficult to charge tolls when all other bridge and tunnel tolls have been abolished.
- Careful, Jim – you’ll enrage ‘ferryman’.
- Scottish Citylink’s response to why the ‘Service Updates’ section on their website doesn’t mention the disruption caused by the A83 closure is to say that they think the road might reopen soon. In this weather, I somehow doubt that.
- I’m surprised that the disruption and extended journey times don’t seem to be flagged on the West Coast Motors and Scottish Citylink websites, and it would be very useful to have an emergency timetable for the route south from Inveraray to Campbeltown (and from Tarbet to Glasgow?) to avoid passengers having to stand at bus stops in foul weather for goodness knows how long. Any chance of this, Citylink / West Coast?
I know that traffic gets glued up on the A82 diversion route between Tarbet and Ardlui due to the very substandard road, but even so it must be possible to predict the ‘earliest delayed timings’, surely?

No parking area? – this suggests more than a whiff of smelly business, to put it politely. Definitely not ‘mince & tatties’, ‘Simon’.

Sounds sensible, difficult to see why the government wouldn’t follow this course.

I wonder if next year’s introduction of much stricter anti-pollution laws to enforce the use of low sulphur marine diesel fuel oil will increase the costs of ‘traditional’ ferries and make more sense of the economics of the new hybrids?

You, and Andrew Argyle, might have a point – John Sinclair’s posts (remember him?) were very evangelistic, and I think that he probably represented a substantial body of the nationalist mindset.
- Councillor Breslin removed from administration by unconstitutional Leaders’ protocol?
And all because local councillors choose to identify themselves with national party politics.
