A BEAR Scotland spokesperson, said: “The clear up operation on the A835 at Leckmelm continues today with the main focus being on removing the remaining 600 tonnes of debris from across the three sites.
“Weather conditions have generally improved and water levels are continuing to recede. The forecast for the day ahead remains favourable and this will hopefully allow us to continue to make good progress throughout today.
“The convoy system remains in place between Leckmelm Farm and Leckmelm Gardens with an ongoing awareness on the requirements of Calmac’s Stornaway Ferry passengers and notably no major issues were experienced in relation to this yesterday. At Corrie lodge the convoy operation has been removed and Scottish Water are now on site at this location carrying out repairs to a water main which was washed away during the main event.
“We will be able to give motorists a more accurate timescale of when the road will reopen as normal later today.”
