[Update 31st October 15.00 - warnings lifted] 30th October. The A83 is yet again under warnings of increased risk of landslide at Rest and Be Thankful,
There is no sign of any more movement on the emergency diversion route should the A83 close with severe threat of landslips or under the weight of the real McCoy.
There is no news of the reaching of agreement with the landowner for this diversion route to be progressed – or of the taking out of a compulsory purchase order to get this serious public interest matter resolved.
We are now on the brink of November, moving pronouncedly into winter and Argyll is still a hostage to this neglect of responsibility.
Is there anyone actually on the job at Transport Scotland?
Is the Task Force – supposed to be supervising the scheduled progress of the emergency diversion route, asking any questions, applying any pressure?
And if they are, is anybody listening?
