Petition and consultation on A9 dualling

The Scottish Parliament's Participation and Communities Team has emailed community councils in the north of Scotland with a reminder that
the Citizen Participation and Public Petitions Committee has launched a consultation which looks at the commitment to dual the A9 and address the on-going safety concerns on the road.
.   .   .   .
This consultation follows a petition submitted by road safety campaigner Laura Hansler, which urges the Scottish Government to fulfil its 2011 promise to fully dual the A9, improve road safety and consider the creation of a national memorial to those who have tragically lost their lives on the road.

MSPs on the Scottish Parliament’s Citizen Participation and Public Petitions Committee are looking at the details of the petition, and want to know what people think about issues related to the dualling of the A9.

You can access the consultaton  here .  Responding to it is not straightforward and seems to require a Facebook or similar login.

The consultation closes on 15 September.
