    Tourist route safety to be addressed on roads in the Highlands

    By David Brown on November 11, 2014

    New improvements are to be made on the road leading to Lochaber in the Highlands in order to address tourist route safety. The £20,000 project to resurface the Road to Isles tourist route is to end on 31st October and the work has been designed to smooth out the road making it safer for drivers. The public are asked to be patient as the improvements take place as there is likely to be some disruption.

    There will be temporary traffic lights and the speed limit will be reduced to 10mph while works are going on. Outwith working times, the speed limit will rise to 30mph. In addition to these works, improvements will also be made alongside the A87 Kyle at Breakish near Broadford on Skye. The works will begin in November and are expected to be completed by December of this year. Improvements like this can help to maintain the condition of the road to prevent accidents and injuries to motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

    Tourist route safety

    Tourist roads like this one are frequented by drivers, cyclists and pedestrians crossing therefore there is likely to be more wear and tear over the years as people pass through. This means that the road may need more maintenance to ensure that road users are not involved in an accident or collision. Potholes and rough roads can make a car veer off-course which could cause a serious accident or injury to another road user. However, drivers who are speeding or driving recklessly may cause an accident because they have been inconsiderate of others and have not considered the conditions of the road. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident that was the fault of another driver, you may be entitled to compensation.
