Dear Mr Gillies,
Thank you for your letter confirming the Council’s position regarding its Inverness Trunk Link Road project.
As no sketch or diagram of the project was enclosed that was omitted from the Scottish Government & Strategic Review, I can only surmise that the alternative proposed Nessie Monster Bridge, crossing the City as expressed to you seen on the KJR website, would be far superior to your Committee’s new explorations on the said old defunct roadway project.
Nonetheless, I wish you all every success with your endeavours, hoping that what you decide upon takes into consideration the folly, and disingenuous concrete sprawl your forefathers sanctioned for us on this once aesthetically, quaint, pleasant and beautiful city of Inverness.
The Tornagrain proposed new village is an architect’s and peoples dream to be place in the wrong place. Cut down Tornagrain Wood, and the fertile plains of Banffshire will suffer from the strong North Moray Firth winds.
Better it placed in the vicinity or terrain of my proposed masterpiece Nessie Monster Bridge, which incidentally can be used as bargaining power with the Chancellor of the Exchequer offer to reduce cost by shortening in the first instance its length to stretch simply from the Kilvean Cemetery road on the A82 ending up at the B8082 Holm Road crossing both the Ness River and the Telford Canal in one fell swoop.
Chancellor Darling must be held to his promise to the First Minister of Scotland, Alex Salmond for the consideration of a capital project such as the Nessie Monster Bridge to help defray the mass unemployment expected caused by UK government mishandling of the economy.
