Council cuts speeds at Invergordon School

From Monday 6 April, 2009 another school in the Highlands will have a permanent 20mph speed limit in operation for children’s’ safety.

The 20 mph speed limit will be introduced on Albany Road and Park Primary School access road, Invergordon.

When this limit comes into operation 60 schools in the Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross area will have 20 mph speed limits in place.  Work is in progress at Achfary and Tongue and consideration is being given to a similar limit at Altnaharra Primary.

Motorists are reminded that if they speed in the vicinity of Highland schools then the penalties will be tough. The Highland Council, Northern Constabulary and the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (Highlands and Islands Area) are clear that if motorists are caught speeding near Highland schools where a 20mph limit is in place, then robust enforcement action will be taken by both the Police and the Procurator Fiscal Service.
