Works to deliver a new active travel connection from Cradlehall to Inverness Campus have commenced, according to The Highland Council.
The Scottish government-funded Low Carbon Travel and Transport Challenge project is currently under construction across HIE-owned land at Inverness Campus.
Cllr Ken Gowans, chair of the council’s Economy and Infrastructure Committee, said: “This route will provide another safe active travel route to support people in the city to make healthier travel choices that will also make a significant contribution to tackling the climate and ecological emergency, compared with driving a car.
“Now the council and its partners are upgrading it, I am sure it will be very well used, especially by people travelling for work and leisure to the campus, city centre and retail park, as well as people looking to get outdoors and be more active for leisure.”
The route will connect the National Cycle Network in the East of Inverness directly into Inverness Campus, where people walking, wheeling and cycling can make use of onward links with the city centre and to the employment, retail and leisure facilities located around Eastfield Way.
Works are expected to be done by the middle of May.
