§ Mrs. Ray Michie
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress has been made in upgrading the A848 Salen to Tobermory Road since 1992; when the upgrade is expected to be completed; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. McLeish
Since 1992 there have been 4 schemes to upgrade specific sections of this local road. The current project which upgrades 4.8km of single track road to 2 lane carriageway from Tobermory is expected to be largely completed by the end of May. Further improvements are a matter for Argyll and Bute Council as local roads authority for Mull.
