Members of the Nairnshire Committee have agreed a list of proposed prioritised roadworks which will be funded out of the Capital Budget allocation for 2024/25.
The actual 2024/25 capital roads budget allocation for Nairnshire is still to be finalised.
The estimated area capital roads programme is currently based on previous years’ baseline £7.2m Highland Area Roads capital budget allocation. Therefore, the estimated local allocation for the Nairnshire area is £275,000. Should the approved 2024/25 budget differ from previous budgets then the programme will be adjusted appropriately.
Members endorsed the programme as presented to Area Committee, with some of the following proposals:
- Surface dressing works on the B9007, West of Ferness junction to Moray boundary.
- Surface dressing works on the C1159, Lochloy road.
- Surfacing works on the A939, A96 junction to B9007 junction.
Chair of the Nairnshire Area Committee, Michael Green, said: “I am pleased that a programme of works to improve roads in the area were agreed at today’s meeting. I would like to commend the hard work of our Area Roads team on maintaining our roads network during these challenging financial times”.
