Day 1 of the Nairn traffic lights improvement works - picture

Info below from a BEAR press Release:

Improvements to traffic signals on the A96 through Nairn are planned to take place starting Tuesday 14th April.

Works will be carried out to further enhance the signalling system as part of Transport Scotland’s and BEAR Scotland’s overall programme of enhancing the efficiency of traffic signalling in the town.

Works will begin at Lochloy Road and then continue onto Seabank Road and Albert Street. 

The programme of improvements will take place between 9.30am and 3.30pm each day, starting Tuesday 14 April and are expected to be completed on Friday 17 April.

Throughout the works temporary traffic signals will be in place which will be removed at the end of each day.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit representative, said “These works will help improve the efficiency of the lights for pedestrian access as well as motorists.

“We have timed the works to take place during school holidays to minimise disruption, however some minor delays may be experienced.”

“We advise motorists to allow for extra time with their journey and check Traffic Scotland for travel information.”

Real-time journey planning information is available from Traffic Scotland at www.trafficscotland.org or twitter @trafficscotland.

New lights at Lochloy Rd junction are just fantastic. 15 minutes today to get from King St roundabout to Sainsbury's. What an improvement, well done whoever's in charge. Do they look after bairn's playgrounds as well?

Maybe this is Nairn's Option Six.

I wonder what the cost of the lights is now. It must be way beyond that which Sainsbury's had to contribute. And there's the hidden cost to all the motorists as they sit in their vehicles, clock ticking work wise and their engines running whilst polluting Nairn
