No line yet but is history getting by-passed?

Liz has left a comment on the article concerning the Lib Dem campaign site for a Nairn by-pass. Here it is fellow Gurnites:
'It should be recognised that the SNP Scottish Government is the first ever to specify a by-pass for Nairn in their Strategic Transport Project Review. The Lib Dem and Labour administration of the first 8 years of Scottish Gov didn't even agree there was a need for a by-pass. I agree that lobbying should be continued and now is not the time to be complacent. The Scottish Gov wants to deliver on it's pledges and we must all do what we can to move it forward. The Highland Council minutes of TEC Committee 22 January 2009 state that TEC Services should work closely with Planning and Development Services during the Highland Structure Plan Review to identify a viable route for Nairn Bypass. This was included because of my contributions. '
You can see the new Lib Dem by-pass campaign blog here.

According to todays P & J it is going to be at least 8 years before any work is started on the Nairn bypass http://tr.im/gVil.

Looks like a long wait for everyone, still, on the bright side plenty of time for the Lib Dems blog to develop :)

Everytime politicians go and stand by a busy road for a photo shoot they are simply underlining the fact that they are powerless to do anything about it.
Add a year onto your wait for everytime someone poses by the A96.
