The new LED car park information signs are now operating in Inverness, but this one isn't much use as the older sign in front of it hasn't been removed.

The A82 is the main road leading west north of the Clyde. It starts slightly east of here and runs all the way to Inverness, a distance of 167 miles.

Inverness + Longman form 80s.jpg
Another reason as to why the longman roundabout was not grade separated due to the obvious reason that, at the time, it didn't lead anywhere incredibly important compared to today where the road crosses Friars Bridge and bypasses the city centre. This photo also shows the pre dualled A96 heading towards the non existent retail park!

Barloan Toll Roundabout - Geograph - 2772097.jpg
Barloan Toll Roundabout The picture was taken from a path that leads up into Bellsmyre. As the name suggests, Barloan Toll was located on the boundary of the burgh.

When trams were running in Dumbarton (from 1907 to 1928), there was a branch line to Barloan Toll (now the site of the roundabout). The branch line left the main line at Church Place (beside 3309889) and followed 620117, Strathleven Place, and 1479101 [see "Dumbarton's Trams and Buses", A.W.Brotchie and R.L.Grieves, 1985].

M8 motorway 1971.jpg
The Glasgow section of the M8 from 1971. Note the Kingston bridge southern terminus, the construction of the Charing Cross section and the A82 extension and the unusual looking J15 which is where M8 became the A8 again on the way to Edinburgh.
