Temporary Traffic Management and Access to the Primary School
A residential property on Park Road Ardrishaig (the former church) has been significantly damaged in a building fire.
Park Road and Kilduskland Road remain closed at their junction.
Areas are currently fenced off for public safety.
There is limited access to the primary school.
Access is available along West Bank Road.
Traffic management will be in place during school pick up and drop off times and delays are expected during this period.
Nursery and p1 children should come to school by their usual arrangements - cars should use West Bank Road.
If your child walks to school, they should come as normal, although they should avoid West Bank Road.
Access is possible from Kilduskland Road using the pedestrian diversion.
If your child is usually dropped off at school please drop them at the pick-up point on Kilduskland Road (at the road closure).
The school will provide a "walking bus "at 8.45am and another one at 8.55am.
Could families please make sure children wear suitable footwear as part of this walk may be muddy.
Please allow additional time as we expect congestion in the mornings.
At home time please pick up as normal. Cars can wait in Park Road however this will require a 3 point turn on the road so please park considerately.
We know that the fire has caused a lot of disruption for everyone and we thank you for your patience.
