Auldearn to Fochabers A96 £50m dualling contract to be awarded

A contract worth up to £50m for route option assessment and detailed design work for a dual carriageway planned for the A96 is set to be awarded.

Transport Scotland said the intention was to award the contract in connection with the 29-mile section between Auldearn and Fochabers to Mott MacDonald Sweco joint venture.

The work is due to take two years.

A £30m contract was awarded to design 19 miles of dual carriageway between Inverness and Nairn last year.
