Traffic speed being surveyed at A82 spot at Drumnadochit after calls by road safety campaigner David Stewart

The Labour MSP requested an investigation by Transport Scotland to determine whether the road meets the criteria for speed cameras. Concerns were raised with Mr Stewart about cars and HGVs speeding through the area, paying no heed to the 30mph signs.

Mr Stewart said he was really pleased with prompt action by Transport Scotland to place sensors around the village – and he welcomed their agreement to add additional sensors.

He said: “This intervention will be welcome news for residents and I am pleased to see extra sensors are also now in place.

“Transport Scotland chiefs have listened and acted, and I am very grateful to my constituents for their input. They have told me they believe the sensors are now in a far better position and will be interested to know the findings. They say they are witnessing vehicles speeding through the section at all hours of the day and night.”
