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’?

    Importance or notoriety?

    It’ll be interesting to see whether pm, longshanks & jim have the decency to apologise – or whether promoting the ‘yes’ line takes precedence over inconvenient facts – and honesty.
    The one thing – above all else – that unites their attitude is bitterness, and this is more than droll, considering the enthusiasm of so many proponents of independence for attaching the ‘bitter’ label to anyone who doesn’t agree with them – and including what I suspect is a very significant chunk of the population who want to see much more independence, but not total divorce.

    JT the BBC – at least on Radio 4 – seem to me to be bending over backwards to ensure that every time one side speaks, the other side gets an equal opportunity – so your comments seem just a touch bitter, if you’re familiar with the meaning of that word.

    Do you really think that the Tory hierarchy don’t already realise that electing Boris the Bounder to the top post would effectively bar them from retaining power in any general election (even in coalition) while he was waving the conductor’s baton?

    JS, how often does someone who gets a contested divorce find that their ex remains ‘their closest ally’?

  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.
