MSP welcomes further safety measures at Munlochy junction

Highlands and Islands Labour MSP, Rhoda Grant, has welcomed the announcement that traffic will no longer be able to turn right onto the A9 northbound when exiting from the B9161 at Munlochy junction.

The MSP has been pressing for improvements in this area and is pleased that this further safety measure is being introduced, following the street lighting being installed at the junction earlier this year.

Rhoda Grant said “The community has been pushing for improvements at the junction for years now and it is good to see some of this now coming to fruition.

“These small improvements being implemented will go some way to improving the situation while the longer term solutions continue to be looked into.”

She concluded “I will continue to have dialogue with Transport Scotland, Police Scotland and the Scottish Government going forward but I welcome this progress in the meantime.”
