Grant welcomes permanent improvement at Munlochy junction

Highlands and Islands Labour MSP, Rhoda Grant, has welcomed the news that permanent works will be carried out next month to prohibit right turns from the B9161 Munlochy junction onto the A9 north.

A permanent traffic island and signage will be installed to replace the temporary arrangement that is in place currently. The work is scheduled to be carried out between Monday 3rd July and Friday 21st July.

Mrs Grant, who pushed for safety improvements at the junction, said “I know neighbouring communities and everyone who uses this road will be pleased to see this work take place.

“Too many lives have been lost at the junction and I hope these improvements will go some way to making the area safer for everyone who uses the road.”
