Don't want the swing bridge

Published: Saturday, 04 April 2009

IT IS Scotland's transport secretary, no less, who is against the building of a swing bridge over the Caledonian Canal in Inverness.

He believed it will cause more congestion, as there are two already over the waterway.

A tunnel and aqueduct have also been proposed, with the idea of another swing bridge getting little support from both nearby residents and commuters, insisting that the openings cause traffic to build up on roads through Inverness.
