The Scottish Government has started the process paving the way for the compulsory purchase of land to enable the A96 to be improved between Inverness and Nairn.

It includes the development of the Nairn bypass.

It has issued the notice of orders as it presses on with the project to improve and construct a new length of the A96 Aberdeen to Inverness Trunk Road between Seafield Roundabout in Inverness and Wester Hardmuir near Nairn.

A copy of the order and relevant plans can be inspected from today until April 23 at various times and locations including Highland Council headquarters in Inverness, the service points in Inverness and Nairn, Ardersier Library and Service Point, Culloden Library, Inshes Library, Inverness Library and Nairn Library.

They can also be inspected at Transport Scotland, at 36 North Hanover Street, Glasgow, or on its website at

A96 Inverness to Nairn.

Anyone wishing to question the validity of the decision to make the order, or any of its provisions, may make an

application to the Court of Session, within such time period as the court in its discretion will allow.
