Fochabers bypass opened and A9 dualling date revealed

Transport Minister Keith Brown has opened the Fochabers bypass, as well as announcing the construction date for the start of A9 dualling.

The £31.5m bypass in Moray to relieve traffic congestion means vehicles on the A96 will not have to travel through the town.

Mr Brown announced a 2017 construction start date for the A9 Luncarty to Birnam scheme in Perthshire.

He said the projects showed a commitment to transport infrastructure.
