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?

  • 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’?

    ‘Bitter and twisted’ doesn’t even begin to describe this sort of stuff.

    With all due respect to Professor Baird, don’t you think the worldwide logistics industry would be developing a transshipment port at Scapa – or even Hunterston – if they made that much sense?
    If you’re imagining that an independent Scotland would throw tens of millions of pounds at developing such ports, just remember the lesson of Portavadie – and bear in mind that just because a container transshipment port has been such a success at Salalah on the Indian Ocean coast of Oman doesn’t mean you can repeat the success in Orkney, or on the Firth of Clyde.

    Witness ‘clipclop’ and ‘Kev’ spewing bile on this thread.

    Well, ‘clipclop’, I know you only surface on this blog once in a blue & white moon, but such is the strength of your feeling that I re-read this article in the hope of understanding your point of view.
    I didn’t have much luck – as far as I can see it’s you more fitted to the label of ‘bitter and twisted’.
    However, the general style of your outrage suggests to me that – in reality – you’re probably ‘doing the rounds’ for the independence campaign, and I wonder what your real name is – and whether you have considerably more than one alias?

    Such charm.

  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.
