Regent Street, Keith
Regent Street, Keith
This is the section of the town known as Fife Keith, founded in 1817 by the Earl of Fife in competition with the old town of Keith. It was not an economic success and was merged with the rest of Keith into a single Burgh in 1889.

Regent Street is part of the A96, the main trunk road between Aberdeen and Inverness.
The A96
The A96 is a major road which runs for nearly 100 miles linking Aberdeen with Inverness in Northern Scotland. It starts in Aberdeen city centre, bypasses Blackburn, Kintore, Inverurie, Huntly, Fochabers and Forres, and passes through Keith, Elgin and Nairn before terminating at the A9 outside Inverness. With the exception of the section in central Aberdeen, it is designated a trunk road for the rest of its entire length.

The Scottish Government has announced plans to upgrade the A96 road to dual carriageway by the year 2030. The project includes dualling the 88 miles of the A96 that is not currently dual carriageway. An 18-mile section between Inverness and Auldearn will bypass Nairn and will be the first section of the A96 to be dualled LinkExternal link (Transport Scotland).
