Between 11 April and 18 July, Sandwick Road in Stornoway will be closed
to eastbound traffic (heading towards the airport and Point) between
Matheson Road and Smith Avenue / Island Road. Westbound traffic will be
unaffected. Diversions will be put in place, going along Island Road or
Smith Avenue. The council recognises that the tight corners which will
have to be negotiated turning into Island Road from Newton could pose
problems for large vehicles like HGV and buses and coaches. This map shows the possible diversion routes.
