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’?

    A bit of cross-dressing might not do him any harm – and I don’t mean a kilt – just about all the party leaders seem to be women, generally of considerable clout.

    Probably just a bunch of sad numpties who take delight in childish pursuits.

    If the roof was intact and no obvious signs of blood I’d say the occupant(s) escaped intact – sorry to sound flippant, Stuart, but it’s just another day on the A83.
    One time I noticed a car, apparently intact and the right way up, completely underwater on the shore at Ardgartan – it transpired the police knew about it, and no-one had been trapped, but it gave me a fright.

    Could you please look at what you’ve written and – if you can’t lower it clear of the header text and advertising blurb that renders most of your message illegible, find someone who can?
    I think that this is the very least that ‘newsie’ deserves – and I very much hope that we haven’t heard the last from her because, as ‘Plugit’ says, she’s been doing a valuable service to the community.
