Major upgrade of the A82 in Fort William to improve traffic flow
This petition had 832 supporters
Local businesses, local road users, emergency services and tourists are dependent on a road infrastucture which allows a safe and efficient means of getting through Fort William. The current road network which comprises a single trunk road now lacks the abiliy to provide this service and requires immediate upgrading by our Scottish Government.
Local industry and tourism is expanding at a rate which cannot be sustained unless this upgrading takes place immediately otherwise it will result in further daily traffic blockages and potential loss of life through emergency services unable to access and provide treatment.
A bypass was planned in the eighties but due to pressure from local commerce who thought it might bypass their businesses was dropped from the then government plans. It now needs to be reintroduced.
