Information requested

“I saw an article in the Lochside Press that showed a graphic representation of accidents in Helensburgh and Lomond. It included Helensburgh and a stretch of the A82 along Loch Lomondside but seemed to stop around the Arden turn off for Helensburgh. I attach a link to the information provided.

Would it be possible to provide the same information in the same format for the area covering the rest of the A82 in West Dunbartonshire to Dumbarton and the area of Balloch and Alexandria? I am particularly interested in the whole of the A82 and the A814 in this area and what ever adjacent area is administratively convenient.”

Response

Only the accident data was provided to the Lochside Press and they used that to produce the electronic map that they published. However, I have now produced a similar electronic map with the data that you have requested which I hope will suffice. This shows accidents that occurred over the period of 2014 to 2018.
