Council congratulates Kerrera community

The Leader of Argyll and Bute Council has welcomed news that the new Kerrera road, connecting the north and south of the island is now complete, making it easier for residents to stay connected in the community.

The road is a long-held island aspiration, made possible by the community with financial support from the Scottish Government.

Argyll and Bute Council, working with the community invested £200,000 as part of its share of Crown Estates funding, to help the community finish the works by tarmacking the road.

Councillor Robin Currie, Leader of Argyll and Bute Council:

“This is an enormous achievement for the Kerrera community who have worked tirelessly to raise funding for the new road. I would like to congratulate everyone involved in this important project that will now make day-to-day island life easier and help support the local economy.

Scottish Crown Estate funding aims to deliver benefits for coastal communities based on four key priorities: the environment, community, climate change and economic development.
