13th June 2019

Inverness Longman junction

An exhibition to highlight the preferred upgrades to the A9/A82 Longman Junction will be taking place in Inverness this month.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to view the options that are currently in the planning pipeline.

Connecting with the local community


Visitors will be able to view the upcoming proposal and leave comments for planners.

Scotland’s cabinet secretary for transport, infrastructure and connectivity Michael Matheson said: “We are taking forward our plans to improve the traffic bottleneck at Longman and we have been working hard to identify a preferred option for this important junction in the Highland capital following initial identification of five options last year.”

Mr Matheson added feedback from the public is vital to ensuring this ambitious project for the local community has optimal results. Detailed assessment and development of the scheme will then move into its final phases.

The first exhibition will be held at the Inverness Caledonian Thistle Football Stadium on June 25th, followed by a second the next day at Inverness Town House.

Both will be open to the public between 12 noon and 7 pm.

Ellie Baker, brand manager at FCS Scotland, adds: “Removing bottlenecks will provide a considerable benefit to the local community and businesses moving forward. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in the scheme to have their say.”
