Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times during the works.

There will be temporary two-way traffic lights in operation on the main road in Burray (A961) at its junction with Ness Road from Monday to Wednesday to enable trial holes to be excavated ahead of further works which are planned to commence of Monday, August 17.
