PLANS for dual carriageway forming part of a new A9 route were debated by Inverness County councillors at a special meeting in March.

They agreed the proposed new road between Inverness and Invergordon should be routed across the Black Isle at a cost of £11.4 million.

They recommended it should include a level crossing over the Beauly Firth between the Longman and North Kessock and a dual carriageway to Tore where it would split into a single carriageway bypassing Conon Bridge and linking with the A9 north of Maryburgh. Alternative proposals that it should be routed as a dual carriageway along the lines of the existing A9 via Kirkhill, Beauly and Muir of Ord were rejected.
