Comment posted Herald promotes SPT Daytripper journey via Helensburgh ferry? by Robert Wakeham.
So it’s a wonder to me why I haven’t seen you raise these major issues already, rather than saving your comments for what’s really nothing more than a bit of nitpicking – accuracy is important, but getting to the stage of distinguishing between residents of Rosneath and residents of the Rosneath peninsula, in this context, is surely getting a bit anal? Don’t you need to concentrate your energies on the real point, the way in which what should be several passenger ferry links on this part of the Clyde have been comprehensively mismanaged by SPT?

- Could it be that SPT has been corrupted by a hostile alien force to cause maximum damage to the economic and social well being of the communities around the shores of the Clyde, under the nose of a supine national government?
- So what – you think those people had no right to protest? you think that the ferry service is fine? are you rooting for SPT? – is it a case of ‘don’t rock the boat boys, remember where your money comes from? just what sort of blinkers are you wearing, and who put them there? Compared with the misinformation in the timetables, and the misinformed piece in the Herald, this is nothing.
- It’s as if SPT’s concept of an integrated public transport system doesn’t extend beyond buses and trains, and it beggars belief; they should be sent on a study tour (of the genuine – rather than junket – variety) of Scandinavia at their own expense, to find out how to do it.

What looks like errant HGVs blindly following their satnavs on an utterly inappropriate route might be something very different, but still worthy of public concern.
The curtain-sided truck in the photos looks to be far too tall to pass under the railway bridge at Whistlefield on this road, so – assuming the photos were taken on the stretch alongside Loch Long – any such HGVs must be engaged in military business at either Glen Mallan or Glen Douglas.
These installations are connected by a military haul road, linking shipping at the Glen Mallan jetty with the railway yard at the Glen Douglas arsenal.
I’ll bet anyone that when these facilities were developed the only public road access needed was for small vehicles – all the big stuff was to arrive & depart by train & ship.
If the operation has changed, to require some freight to move by road, this could explain the disappearance and non-replacement of the HGV warning sign.
Presumably trucks like the one photographed are carrying non hazardous material, but it would be good to have this confirmed. And the MOD needs to get itself a proper road.
