Ferry buses okay with Kessock Bridge

TIMETABLES of buses connecting with the Ullapool-Stornoway ferry should not be disrupted by the major roadworks being carried out on the Kessock Bridge, it was stated on Friday.

A spokesman for Citylink told the Gazette there was “enough wiggle room” in the timetable to accommodate any delays caused by the single carriageway in place while expansion joints on the bridge are fixed.

However, the bus company will be monitoring traffic flows on the bridge very closely and will divert via Muir of Ord if necessary.
