East Sutherland communities demand action on A9 problems
East Sutherland and Edderton councillor Deirdre Mackay, who chaired the meeting, said pedestrians, and particularly the elderly and disabled were having difficulty crossing the road at points because of the volume of traffic, the perceived speed and the narrowness of the roads and pavement. HGVs were a particular problem.
She said: “There is a raft of issues with the A9 but underpinning everything is the three villages were never designed for the volume of traffic that they have now. They were designed for horses and carts.”
