Transport Scotland and its operating contractor BEAR have promised they are on track to repair A83 potholes.

Argyll and Bute MSP Michael Russell, Councillors Dougie Philand and Donald Kelly have all put pressure on Transport Scotland to rectify the road.

In addition, the social media site A83, has been thick with complaints about the road in recent months particularly the secion between Minard and Inveraray and the Furnace bends.

Mr Russell said: ‘The A83 is the main artery for much of Argyll.

‘For some weeks I have been making strong representations to Transport Scotland and to BEAR, as well as keeping the transport minister informed.

I will be holding the company to these commitments and Transport Scotland has agreed to provide me and Cllr Philand with a weekly update.

‘I will also continue to ensure that complaints are attended to with urgency.’
