The preferred option to dual a section of the A96 has gone on public display.
The proposed 28-mile route goes north of Forres, south of Elgin and north of Fochabers and includes seven grade-separated junctions, new crossings of the Rivers Findhorn, Lossie and Spey and five crossings over the Aberdeen to Inverness railway line.
Transport Scotland started public displays on the route yesterday in Elgin.
It was due go on show at the Mansefield Hotel in the Moray town again at noon today.
Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity Michael Matheson said: “We are continuing to progress our ambitious plans to dual the A96 between Inverness and Aberdeen by 2030, delivering around 88 miles of upgraded road.
“As part of that programme, we have been taking forward the route option assessment work for dualling the 28-mile section between Hardmuir and Fochabers and we are now able to let the public see the preferred option.
“The preferred option will provide better transport connections in Moray and to the wider transport network and bring relief to communities currently affected by through traffic.”
