Greenock and Inverclyde MSP Duncan McNeil has expressed his disappointment at the latest failure to take action on the A78 junctions.

The MSP has now called on Transport Minister Keith Brown to take action after he agreed to meet with a small group of residents, at Mr McNeil’s invite.

He said: “It is no surprise to me that the transport agencies have again refused to take action over this accident black spot, it is time that we seen real political leadership from the minister in charge.

“I am disappointed that Transport Minister Keith Brown has not taken up my invitation to speak at a public meeting and has instead chosen to hide behind his officials at a closed meeting with councillors and the community council.

“This is the same minister who has found plenty of time to campaign in Inverclyde when a by-election was called but is still refusing to explain his lack of action on the A78 to the people of Inverkip.”
