A roads campaigner has made authorites aware of a gaping hole at a pedestrian crossing spot in Fairlie.

Concerns have been raised that it could be a potential fall hazard for cyclists, with it being difficult to see, particularly after dark.

The gap in the road, on the A78 at the junction with The Causeway, was spotted on Saturday evening, and reported to Amey who are responsible for trunk roads in the south-west of the country on behalf of Transport Scotland.

The road is also popular with cyclists, one of whom raised a concern with roads campaigner Archie Burleigh, who has contacted Amey regarding the issue.

Mr Burleigh said: "There is an ironwork cover missing at this busy pedestrian crossing point.

"I have asked that Amey to please chase up the utility company to make it safe.

"Hopefully there can be a quick resolution to the issue."
