Annual Surface Dressing Programme

The Comhairle will be commencing the annual surface dressing programme of works on Monday 9th of May 2022 for approximately 6 to 8 weeks across the Western Isles.

Works will commence in the Harris area for 1 week before operations move to Uist and Barra for 3 weeks, then returning to Lewis. Traffic management and warning signs will be in place and the travelling public are asked to take heed of the warnings and temporary speed limits. All works are dry weather dependent and are subject to delays.

Works locations include A859 Clisham, Scarista, Cameron Terrace, C78 Carragreich, Berneray, A865 5 sections Uist, A888 4 sections Barra, B8011 Uig Bends, A858 Brue, Cross Skigersta area Ness, A857 Barvas Moor and Laxdale School, B895 Coll and Gress.

Drivers should allow additional time for travelling whilst works are in these areas to allow for expected delays.

The Comhairle would like to thank the public for their assistance.
