One comment

  1. There have been many many accidents at this roundabout and there is concern among many about the size and configuration of this particular roundabout.

    Of course any suggestion that the swept area is inadequate is met with a stonewall silence. And when you look at the accident statistics for this section of road or through to Milton, the statistics are buried in among those for the entire A82 from Crianlarich to Glasgow boundary.

    This time with a death at this black spot questions must be asked, answers given, and actions needed taken.
