Safety improvements will be made by BEAR Scotland at the A82 Kenneth Street/Tomnhurich Street junction, Inverness, on Sunday 5 February. The sequence of the traffic signals will be amended, to make using the junction and crossing safer for pedestrians and motorists.

The changes will take place from 8am to 8.15am and during this time, the traffic lights will be turned off. Traffic will be manged on site by BEAR Scotland operations staff. Staff will be on site to assess the changes and check the operation, and to answer any questions. They will monitor traffic throughout the morning after the changes are made.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “We have listened to feedback from members of the local community and observed and analysed the ways the junction has been used since improvements were made in 2021. In response to this, changing the sequence of the traffic signals is necessary to ensure the safety of all road users.

“We’ve taken steps to limit the overall impact of the project by carrying out the work at a quieter time to cause less disruption. Our team will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as they can, and we thank the local community and road users for their patience in advance. We encourage motorists to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date travel information.”
