A9 Dualling: Walking Group Consultation

On Friday 28th November, Colin Matheson will be attending a so-called “Walking Group” Consultation relating to the proposed dualling of the A9.  I will be representing the interests of the SOA so if any club or individual wants me to raise any issues/concerns please let me know in advance.  Examples might include the potential loss of areas such as Dalnamein but also improved access time from the major cities.
