HC Deb 06 April 1939 vol 345 cc3002-3W
Mr. MacNeill Weir

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the numerous complaints made by motorists visiting the West Highlands about the bad condition of the roads after leaving Fort William and Invermoriston; and what action has been recently taken and is being taken to improve the road to Cluanie and Kyle?

Mr. Burgin

I assume that the hon. Member refers to the Mallaig Roadwhich proceeds westwards from Fort William. Steps are being taken to improve its condition. In July, 1937, the reconstruction of seven miles between Arisaig House and Lochailort was put in hand and should be completed next autumn. Reconstruction works on a further nine miles from Arienskill to Loch Shiel will be started shortly.

The condition of the Invermoriston-Cluanie Road and the Invergarry-Cluanie Road as far as Tomdoun is not
