Options for A96 Hardmuir to Fochabers set to go on public display

Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Keith Brown said:

“The Scottish Government has given a clear commitment to dual the A96 which will see delivery of around 88 miles of upgraded road between Inverness and Aberdeen, a huge task but one we are committed to delivering. “As part of that work, we are taking forward the design work for the stretch of the route between Hardmuir and Fochabers and later this month we will let people see the options we have developed for this challenging 28 mile section of the A96. “I would encourage anyone with an interest in this scheme to visit one of the exhibitions from 19-22 June and give us their views. The vital feedback we receive will help inform the design and assessment work as we look to identify a preferred route option next year.”
