Blasting hinders ferry traffic

Blasting operations are impacting on ferry traffic travelling south to Leverburgh for the Berneray ferry.

The road between Tarbert and Leverburgh will be closed to traffic at 14:00 today to allow the blasting to take place.

Any traffic intending to travel to Leverburgh for the 14:40 departure to Berneray must be south of Luskentrye road-end prior to 14:00 to connect with the sailing, or take an alternative route to Leverburgh for the sailing.

The ferry will not be able to await any delayed traffic,
