Mind Your Speed!

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Wednesday September 13 2017

Speed limit to be reduced for west section of Elphin.

Members of Sutherland County Committee have approved a reduction in the 40mph speed limit to 30mph over the 650m stretch of road in Elphin, from the current western limit of the 40mph speed limit to just east of the Abhainn a’ Chnocain bridge.

The remainder of the 40mph speed limit will not to be reduced to 30mph in accordance with engineering reasons and national guidelines.

An engineering investigation will be carried out to investigate the construction of a level verge footpath along the length one side of the A835 to connect houses to the phone box, post box and Community Hall to encourage healthy life styles and reduce isolation.

Road signage will also be improved and two permanent solar powered “smiley faces” will be installed at each end of the village.
