Highlands and Islands Labour MSP, Rhoda Grant, is welcoming the imminent publication of the Part 1 appraisal report on the A9 North Kessock to Tore safety study.
Mrs Grant, who has tabled a Parliamentary Question asking if consideration will be given to lowering the speed limit to 50mph on this stretch of the road, said “Communities who use the road every day are desperate to see improvements introduced before any further accidents happen.
“I share the frustration at the amount of time that has passed since I first raised this with the Scottish Government two years ago so I welcome that the Part 1 appraisal report will be made public this week.
Mrs Grant concluded “We need to move forward with the interim work of installing the street lighting at the Munlochy junction as soon as possible and the concerns of local communities regarding the speed limit on this stretch of road must be considered by government in the meantime.”
