Scottish Water will carry out essential work to upgrade its water network
infrastructure on the Isle of Mull this month.

The work will be carried out on Thursday June 20 and involves upgrades to pipework on the A848 between Salen and Tobermory.

To enable the upgrades to take place, road traffic management has been in liaison with Argyll and Bute Council.

The A848 will be closed between those two locations from 9pm until 6am the following day. Diversions will be in place.

Ruaridh MacGregor, from Scottish Water, said: ‘This work is vital to ensure our customers in the area continue to enjoy clear, fresh drinking water. It will also help reduce the chance of pipes bursting.

‘As the main route to Tobermory from the ferry terminal, we know that this road can be particularly busy. For this reason, we’ve scheduled the work to take place overnight so that disruption can be kept to a minimum.

‘We’d like to thank the local community and road users in advance for their patience and understanding while this essential work is carried out.’
