Safety fears over crack in Rothesay road

This section of Ardencraig Road in Rothesay has been fenced off after a crack was discovered in the road surface.

Safety concerns have been raised after a crack opened up in a Rothesay road which runs above a row of houses on the edge of the town.

The crack in the surface of Ardencraig Road, which runs above and parallel to Craigmore Road, has been fenced off after being reported to Argyll and Bute Council - but concerns over the lack of work done since the problem was first noticed were aired at Bute Community Council this week.

BCC member Gertie Reynolds told the organisation’s February meeting: “The cracked section had a fence put round it, but nobody has been back to do anything about it.

“The crack has opened to four inches in places, and it’s widening and lengthening as each day goes by.

“On the seaward side of the road there’s a drop of about 30 feet to the houses below. I wouldn’t like to be living there if it collapses.”

Local Argyll and Bute councillor Len Scoullar said he would bring Mrs Reynolds’ concerns to the attention of council officials.
