‘Long overdue’ road and pavement resurfacing work in Port Ellen on Islay has been welcomed.

The improvements at North Bay, Leodamus Place, Corrsgeir Place and Texa Crescent have been welcomed by Kintyre and Islands councillor Alastair Redman.

‘While this will not be a cure-all for our ageing infrastructure, it is a welcome step in the correct direction,’ said Councillor Redman.

Many other areas in Port Ellen, including Mansefield Road, still need substantial upgrades and further widespread investment is required across the whole Kintyre and the Islands ward, according to Councillor Redman.

Portnahaven and Port Wemyss are also on the agenda for the islands councillor.

Among the issues raised by constituents with Mr Redman are overflowing public bins, some street lights not working and dog fouling.

‘I have raised all of these pressing matters with Argyll and Bute Council’s roads and street lighting department,’ he said.
