Longman Roundabout part of £135 million improvement scheme in Inverness

Transport Scotland are to undertake a series of studies on one of the city’s busiest roundabouts this month as part of a £135 million improvement scheme.

The Longman Roundabout is one of the largest in the city, connecting the A9 and A82 trunk roads, with thousands of tourists crossing its path every year to reach the North Coast 500.

For several years the junction has been subject to long delays and lengthy tailbacks during peak times.

Works on the central reservation are due to begin on Monday, May 14 for five nights with a number of traffic measures being put in place. The outside lanes of both roads will be closed between 8pm and 6pm to help ensure the safety of road workers.

The project aims to come up with design work for the Longman Junction Improvement scheme in Inverness.

A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “This topographical survey work is needed to get important information as we progress the design of the Longman Junction Improvement scheme.

“We apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause and would thank road users and local communities in advance for their patience during the works. The contractor will closely monitor the operation of the traffic management measures to ensure that delays are kept to a minimum.

“We would ask drivers to plan their journeys in advance using the Traffic Scotland website, twitter feed or Traffic Scotland radio.”

The project, worth £135 million, is part of a £315 million Inverness and Highland City-Region Deal.

A study was previously commissioned in 2012 to look at the wider traffic issues which are associated with the A9, A96 and A82, taking four years to complete.
