We want you to build an alternative route from Fort William to Caol, Corpach and Banavie to ease the pressure of traffic through the bottleneck roundabout at the A82-A830 junction from Fort William to Mallaig and Inverness
Why is this important?
For four months, during the high season there are frequent two mile tailbacks with traffic crawling in first gear and when there are accidents - which are unfortunately way too frequent - the whole of Fort William grinds to a halt for hours on end. This is having a terrible effect on the local economy and on tourism. It could easily be rectified with the addition of an alternative route to Caol. If money can be found to build a second road bridge over the mighty Forth then surely money can be found to build a bridge over the humble River Lochy.
