Stornoway road works alert

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is embarking on a programme of investment in the roads infrastructure following significant damage over the winter months and would like to alert drivers that road works are currently underway on Goathill road which are likely to result in delays to traffic movements.

The work was initially concentrating on the section between Smith Avenue and Matheson Road and has now moved to the top end of Goathill Road.

Over the next few days and into the beginning of next week further works will be taking place on Perceval Road north as well as Jamieson Drive and Smith Avenue.

The work on Smith Avenue is programmed for early next week.

Drivers are advised to avoid these areas if possible especially when it can be seen that work is ongoing.

The work coincides with the traffic diversions for Sandwick Road. This is unavoidable due to operational reasons.

The Comhairle appreciates the continued assistance and patience of road users during this necessary maintenance work.
