Red light Roads
B8035 road on Mull closed for urgent repair work Last updated: 23 Jan 2017 - 12:40 (originally posted: 23 Jan 2017 - 12:37)

A bridge inspection by Argyll and Bute Council’s engineers has highlighted that urgent repair works need to be carried out to Knock bridge on the B8035 (just north east of the Knock Farm and west of Gruline)

Due to the narrowness of the bridge the road will be closed from Monday 23rd January to allow the works to go ahead.

It is hoped that the works will be carried out over the course of the following two weeks, however it may take longer depending on what is found once works begin.

There is an alternative route via the A849 and the southern section of the B8035.

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

When serious issues with any bridge on the public road network are highlighted immediate action is taken to ensure public safety.

Once works are completed we will have to consider what level of weight restriction will be necessary on the bridge in the future.
