A roadside monitoring station, with camera functions, has been installed at the Braighe over the summer months, says Comhairle nan Eilean Siar.

The Roadside Camera Station will provide the travelling public, Emergency services and decision makers with more visual information. This will allow them to make better informed decisions on safe travel along the Braighe in winter months during periods of high tide and stormy weather.

The camera has the ability to measure wind speed and direction and limited visibility night time images are also possible as a result of an infra-red camera.

Camera images will appear on the Comhairle website in the coming weeks. It is hoped that a live camera feed will be available before the winter months.
