An online public consultation exercise about safety improvements at the dangerous A9 Munlochy junction has attracted more than 1,000 responses in 24 hours.
Highland MSP Kate Forbes set up the consultation as a means of gathering views from regular road users on the A9, in advance of a summit meeting with Transport Scotland and community representatives later this month.
The development follows a series of accidents and fatalities at the junction on the A9, which leads onto the B9161.
Results from the six-question survey, which includes suggested improvements to the present layout as well as opportunities for people to report their own experiences, will be presented to roads engineers at the meeting in North Kessock on Friday March 2o.
Every community council in the Black Isle has been invited to the summit.
But their members insist there are steps which can be taken immediately to alleviate some of the dangers.
John Stott of Knockbain community council said: “There is sufficient data available about the junction.
“Politicians are just kicking the can down the road.”
Ms Forbes said: “The purpose of this consultation was to invite comments and concerns from everybody in the area who uses the junction regularly. It means that people can shape the solutions.
“It’s all very well to debate what should happen immediately, but ultimately I want a solution that really makes a difference and doesn’t create even more problems.
“The fact that so many people have responded in so little time demonstrates the strength of feeling and the ideas.”
