A Bypass Route for Inverness

Thank you for your letter received yesterday revealing that the Transport Minister, whatever his politics, has not allowed funding for your TLR road project, he has saved you the embarrassment of being responsible for, and having to live with a massive snarl-up at a point as you say passing my own door, in our current road structure, so negating the magnificence of the Telford’s Caledonian Canal, creating a blight on the City of Inverness far greater than the ugly sight of the 60s monstrosity building that we have in the high street.
I agree with you that a City of Inverness “bypass is absolutely vital to Inverness” but not your 50 years out of date TLR road funded locally.
In this climate of economic depression caused by Chancellor Gordon Brown, now Prime Minister, it is not the responsibility of the Scottish Government, but of the Westminster Government, and completely outwith local government financing to fund an Inverness bypass.
You can see my support for “an Inverness bypass” featured throughout the six letters on the Kings Jazz Review website at:
http://ds.dial.pipex.com/jazzitoria/ under the heading of: (this one being the seventh)
Inverness, Scotland, linking the A96 – A9 – B8082 of Holm Road that connects them up to finally the A82 at Kilvean Cemetery off road – by a Nessie Monster Bridge.
Look, surely we can do likewise for the city of Invernes.
Somehow - I much expect that we can't.
