A96 dualling and Nairn by-pass design contract awarded

Soon to be on the drawing board but any bets on when a contract to build the by-pass will be awarded?
'Work has started on designing the long-awaited upgrade for one of the north’s most notorious roads.
Transport Minister Stewart Stevenson will confirm today a firm has been appointed to identify “preferred solutions” for dualling of the A96 between Inverness and Nairn.
The project will also involve drawing up plans for a Nairn bypass and a new link connecting the A96 to the A9 Inverness-Perth road south of the Highland capital.'
And elsewhere in today's P&J Drivers will believe it when they see it

Wow, designer roads.

Will it have the name of the designer stamped in the concrete every few yards?

And I assume that as a designer road it will cost a lot more than the non label variety even though it's made of the same stuff!

Will those on the edge of fashion want to wear chunks of this road around their necks

What I really look forward to is seeing how the designer is going to eliminate the inevitable traffic gridlocks at either end of this new autobahn
