THE DESIGN work to upgrade the traffic bottleneck at Longman roundabout in Inverness has reached an important milestone.

The public are now able to see and comment on five options that have been developed for grade separating this busy junction in the Highland capital.

Transport Minister Humza Yousaf said: ‘The Longman Junction Improvement Scheme is part of the Scottish Government’s commitment within the £315 million Inverness and Highland City Region Deal. As well as Longman, significant investment will be made in the trunk road network to deliver the A9/A96 Inshes to Smithton Link Road. When completed, these schemes will reduce congestion and improve accessibility to Inverness.
