The Courier quotes oor Graham:
"The reality is we already have significant problems in Nairn with traffic coming through and this is going to make it a whole lot worse."
In the Editorial the papers quotes some of Nairn's cultural attributes, golf, tourism etc, but then goes on to say:
"But soon it will be forged indelibly into the minds of motorists using the A96 as Traffic Light Town."
We'll link to the article and editorial if they appear on the Courier site later today. Another interesting point in the editorial which will resonate with objectors to the South Nairn proposals:
"What this affair underlines is that Nairn's roads are close to breaking point. If the building of a supermarket necessitates five new sets of lights to keep the town moving, imagine what 300 new homes at Sandown would require."
One wonders if Highland planners would agree with that statement?
