Preliminary activity has commenced in preparation for construction work to start on the new Bernera Bridge crossing, says Comhairle nan Eilean Siar.

Contractors are on site-diverting utility services and accesses are being created to areas where geotechnical engineers will confirm rock and foundation levels. 

The main construction works will commence next month (April) in advance of the bridge components starting to arrive.

Current estimates indicate that the bridge will be in place by the end of June.
