Highlands and Islands Labour MSP, David Stewart, dropped by the new Glenurquhart Road crossing at Smith Avenue, Inverness.
“I took up constituents’ concerns about road safety on the road in March 2017. Transport Scotland said at first that a crossing on this stretch of the A82 ‘could not be justified’,” said Mr Stewart
“However, I joined campaigners in not giving up, even in 2018 when again the agency said it did not see a need for a crossing on this stretch. But it then went on to find out local people’s views and changed its mind and I must congratulate Transport Scotland for that.
“It was good therefore to see the first crossing at Smith Avenue last week and I look forward to the second being installed near Montague Row. (work was stalled due to Coronavirus)
I am sure these will improve safety for children crossing for school, for the elderly and the disabled.
