Transport Secretary Michael Matheson said: “The Scottish Government has given a clear commitment to dual the A96 which will see delivery of around 88 miles of upgraded road between Inverness and Aberdeen, a huge task but one we are committed to delivering.
“As part of that work, we are taking forward the design work for the stretch of the route between East of Huntly and Aberdeen.
“Having shared our options and invited comment from local residents on a series of options last October, we have now reduced the number of options for this challenging section of the A96.
“We have also made some changes to the options being taken forward as a result of the feedback we have received.
“I would encourage anyone with an interest in this scheme to visit one of the drop-ins from 28-31 May and give us their views.
“The vital feedback we receive will help inform the design and assessment work as we look to identify a preferred option by the end of this year.”
