This weekend, with the Rest & Be Thankful …

Comment posted Mid Argyll Chamber of Commerce raises A83 issues with Transport Scotland after Cabinet Secretary’s letter to Michael Russell by Robert Wakeham.

This weekend, with the Rest & Be Thankful closed because of the landslde danger, can anyone say for sure that the old military road option would not also be ‘in the line of fire’ from landslides?

Robert Wakeham also commented

  • If Transport Scotland goes for the option of upgrading the old military road, then it could be very interesting watching large hgvs – say timber trucks with trailers, artic whisky tankers and supermarket supply trucks – negotiating the hairpin bend and steep gradient immediately below the summit.
    Or, in the real world, will the diverted hgvs be scraping past each other along that sick joke of a trunk road up Loch Lomondside, the A82, on the ‘long way round’?

    Sorry, I wasn’t referring to our dear leader, I was thinking of his representative on Earth – NCH.

    Some news for you, Hunchy – RBS is based in a large campus on the western fringe of Edinburgh, and that’s the Bank’s headquarters, the nerve centre, where decisions get taken and bank policy is determined.
    Now the interesting bit, Hunchy – Edinburgh really is in Scotland.

    I’m not even sure that there is an obsession, or whether it’s been inflated by a national socialist tendency to stoke the embers of dislike of public schoolboys / ‘capitalists’ / smooth talking, relatively young, ‘not one of us’.
    As the embers glow brighter and start to flame, the fact that Scotland breeds exactly the same sort of people gets lost along the way – witness the comments here and in the likes of the Herald that blame England alone for every Scottish ill imaginable, from the history of slavery right up through empire building and exploitation of other people to the ongoing breathtaking greed and selfishness of some of the very wealthy in our society.
    Yes, we could be entering a very unpleasant era, if there’s a descent into polarisation of opinion, genuine (as opposed to imagined) bitterness, and recrimination

    Anne – do you really think that people would consider dissatisfaction with Cameron sufficient cause to opt for a one-way ticket to separation?

    NCH / MM – it’s Lundavra – even I know that.

  2. So how much would fixing the A83 and putting vehicles ferries on the Dunoon Gourock route cost in comparison with say the new Forth Road Bridge?

    Why is there such an inequality in spending on transport infrastructure. The A83 and Dunoon Ferry problems have both been around for years.
