A96 Inverness-Nairn dualling - design consultant appointed

The Scottish Executive (aka 'Scottish Government') has appointed a design consultant to look at "preferred solutions" for the dualling of the A96 Aberdeen-Inverness highway between Inverness and Nairn, to include a Nairn bypass. The funding for this is 500,000 Pounds.

How soon the funding might be found to do the actual road-works is anyone's guess, but I suspect it may be some years away, considering the budgetary problems in the whole UK and of course in Scotland, too.

  1. This kind of thing happens all over - near us the proposed Mottram & Tintwistle bypass has been on and off for the last 30 years - the amount spent on reports and counter-reports is obscene. If they'd just built the thing 25 years ago it would have saved everyone a fortune.
