Election hopefuls back A85 campaign

THE Stay Alive on the A85 campaign is really taking off and this week we hear what council election candidates think of the problem.

It was community councillor Sean MacIntyre who kicked off the first petition to raise the profile of the dangers of the road.

Mr MacIntyre said: ‘The 30mph speed limit should be stretched as far as the cemetery.

And from there to Dunbeg, double white lines and a reduction in speed from 60mph, as this section of road is used more since the cycle track was opened.’

The cycle track runs between Ganavan Sands and Dunbeg, which directs cyclists onto the main road in both directions. Mr MacIntyre worked on the initial campaign alongside Julie McKenzie, who is committed to making the road safer.
