Still Time to Take Part in Highland 20mph Consultation

The Council is reminding the public and community groups that there is still time to submit feedback on the Highland-wide 20mph roll-out project.

125 Highland settlements are part of the project which equates to around 610km of roads across the Highlands, 590km of which are on Local Authority Roads.

The Council launched its public consultation at the start of December with ashort on-line questionnaire.

This includes an easy-to-use interactive street map which allows anyone using it to point out any specific areas where they wish to see change or provide comment on.

Chair of The Highland Council’s Economy and Infrastructure Committee, Councillor Ken Gowans said:

“There is still time to take part in our consultation.

“It is important that as many people as possible take this chance to let us know of any supporting comments or any suggestions they have for changes.

“Local people know their areas best and all feedback we receive will be part of the decision-making process for the next phase of the project and will provide valuable feedback on the roll out to date.”

The 20mph speed limits on Trunk Roads (A9, A82, A835, A96, A95, A87, A86, A830) are the responsibility of Transport Scotland but people can pass on their comments by using the Council’s on-line questionnaire.

The scheme is being fully funded by the Scottish Government who invited Highland Council to be an early adopter of 20mph limits.

The consultation will run until the end of January 2024.
