Chair of SCOTS Ewan Wallace said; "Partnership working among roads services across all Scottish councils is producing positive results. Road condition is now stabilising year on year. In difficult economic conditions, local councils are delivering efficiencies combined with increased investment in roads."
"Additional action is being taken forward in Fairlie, where we are investigating whether traffic signals can be activated by vehicles travelling at excessive speed. We hope to be able to update the local community on this by the end of August."
Jo Blewett, Transport Scotland’s Programme Manager for the A9 dualling programme, said: "These ground investigations are needed to get vital information on the existing A9 carriageway as we progress our plans to dual the 7.5 kilometre section of the route."
She continued: "The health impacts of air pollution are clear, the government's strategy is not. For the sake of people's lives and wellbeing, air pollution needs to be tackled as an urgent priority. We cannot afford to wait any longer."
