A consultation on school transport in the Laxdale area is due to take place.
Stornoway North councillor Gordon Murray welcomed the consultation.
Cllr Murray stated: “This is positive news for those parents in Newvalley, Marybank,
Benside and Bakers Road who have battled for the reinstatement of the school bus
to the Nicolson Institute.
“I hope that the leader Roddie Mackay and the director of education will listen to
their pleas and reinstate the buses so that children from these areas can travel
to school without worrying about the traffic and inclement weather.
“To hear stories of children turning up to school drenched is not acceptable.”
