A trial of new timings of traffic lights at a busy roundabout in Inverness will start on 29 August, Transport Scotland has said.

The signals at the Longman Roundabout are to change quicker in an effort to ease congestion at the site on the A9.

The lights at the roundabout close to the Kessock Bridge have been the cause of frustration for motorists.

Transport Scotland looked at four options to ease travel, including removing the lights.

However, it said speeding up the timing of the signals "was shown to deliver the best results".

Following consultation with Highland Council, the new timings will be trialled until about mid-September.
