VOTE: Which island should get the first fixed link? 

Last week, Louise Shearer, the council’s inter-island transport connectivity project manager confirmed a priority list will be made to determine which isles should get tunnels first.

Following, a significant online response over the weekend, we are asking our readers to share their views via our poll. 

Voting will close at 5pm on Wednesday.

      If 70-odd (or whatever the number is nowadays) folk want to live on a wee island in the middle of the sea to watch birds and knit pullies, that’s their privilege- but they should pay 100% of the costs of getting there and back.
