Statement of The Scottish Ministers’ Reasons for Applying a 30mph on the Section of the A82 Drumnadrochit and Lewiston
The section of the A82 in Drumnadrochit is currently 30mph. The A82 in Lewiston currently has a 40mph speed limit but there is a new large scale development in Lewiston which would require a reduction in speed limit to 30mph. It is therefore proposed to revoke the current order and promote a new order for a 30mph speed limit through the two villages.
