The £2.9 million A95 Dulnain Bridge bypass will be completed by the Scottish Office after local government reorganisation, Lord James Douglas-Hamilton MP, Scottish Office minister for roads and transport, confirmed today.

Speaking after a meeting with the convenor and representatives of Highland RC, Lord James said:

'I have considered carefully the representations made to me by the regional council and individuals, and I have decided that the Dulnain Bridge bypass should be completed by the national roads directorate of the Scottish Office following the trunking of the A95 on April 1, 1996.

'Highland Region are also to be commended for securing 25 per cent of the scheme's £2.9 million cost from European Regional Development Fund Objective 1 funding.'

Construction of the scheme will begin before the end of March 1996 and is expected to last up to two years.
