A taste of things to come?
Could disruption spill onto the A96 once work, lights, action hit the High Street in a few days time? Work yesterday on the A96 saw traffic tailing back either side of the roadworks with motorists heading West frustrated by the oncoming traffic becoming stuck in the one lane system when the lights went to red at the A96/Leopold St junction. This work has been ongoing for several days now with no obvious end in sight, lets hope it's soon
UPDATE 22.18: We hear from Scottish Water that the hole in the road is their responsibility a spokesman told the Gurn:
'The traffic lights on the A96 at Seabank Rd are for emergency repairs to a collapsed manhole. It's a very deep brick walled chamber that has started to give way so we can't delay the work. We expect the repairs to take days rather than weeks.
Just our luck this happens so close to the start of Return of Streetscape.
Many thanks to motorists for their patience.'
