The Argyll First group of councillors are leading a campaign to bring Argyll’s arterial road, the A83 up to standard.
They are concerned with:
- the lack of action to deal with closures through its susceptibility to landslides
- the ‘pinch points’ that exist at Inveraray and between Lochgilphead and Tarbert
- the lack of proper crossing points at the villages of Ardrishaig and Tarbert
- the trunking of the road between Kennacraig and Campbeltown
They are asking all residents of Argyll and Bute and all users of this road wherever they live to email support for this campaign.

In the interests of convenience for supporters and for the reach of the campaign, Argyll First has today (22 December 2011) set up an online petition whose results will be conveyed, with those of the entire campaign, to the Scottish Government in February 2012.
The A83 affects the lives and businesses of almost every resident of and visitor to Argyll.
Here is the link to the online petition. Please sign it now – for yourself and in the interests of Argyll – first.
