A96 Fochabers and Mosstodloch Bypass

The new 5 km A96 Trunk Road Bypass of Fochabers and Mosstodloch has opened; improving the main A96 route between Aberdeen and Inverness.

The £31.5 million Fochabers and Mosstodloch bypass will reduce traffic congestion and improve road safety and journey times along this important route linking two of the main cities in the north of Scotland.

The opening of the scheme, along with other work going on along the A96, reinforces the Scottish Government's commitment to the route.
