ANEW British Road Services branch was officially opened at Dunoon. Argyllshire yesterday by Provost Hugh A. Christie. The new depot, situated at the junction of Argyll Road and Union Street, replaces the Strone branch and is designed to improve the service for traders and merchants in the Dunoon area.

Having a traffic shed 110 ft. long and 80 ft. wide, the Dunoon depot has a 40-ft. by 15-ft. loading bank for transhipment work and there is an office block and refuelling and routine servicing facilities. Cattle-float gantries have been erected in the concrete-paved yard to enable the branch to store the containers needed for the movement of cattle.

The replaced Strone branch operated seven vehicles and provided local connections with the Argyll branch which last year handled + m. consignments totalling nearly 70,000 tons and carried m. gallons of milk and 40,000 head of livestock.

Mr. W. Poison, previously at Strone, takes over as manager of the new Dunoon depot; his telephone number is Dunoon 1314.
