We call on the Scottish Government to take action over the traffic chaos that is currently taking place in Nairn which has resulted from changes in traffic management that have resulted from the number of junctions controlled by traffic lights rising from four to eight ; and we observe that this has seen drivers travelling along the A96 through Nairn opt to take a de- tour along the back road between Auldearn and Culloden Moor, trebling the amount of traffic on a road that is not fit for such a volume of traffic and is thus creating a road safety issue; and that has been exacerbated by gas mains work being carried out at Harbour Street, High Street, Bridge Street and St Ninian Road junction on the A96 last week, all taking place during daylight hours when a more would have been a more efficient and effective time frame to carry out the work could have been sought; and that in light of the assessment that it may be a couple of years before work begins on dualling the A96 by 2030, with the Inverness to Nairn stretch, including the Nairn Bypass, we further call on the Scottish Government to provide solutions to the traffic jams now, and not in a few years’ time; and that this requires a proper look at the current traffic management systems.
