Bus Partnership Fund Projects

Raigmore Bus Gate


A new bus gate from Raigmore Hospital to Raigmore Housing estate has been proposed. This is to assist in the improvement of the public transport network and mitigate transport impacts of new development.

The bus gate is a direct link between Raigmore Estate and Raigmore Hospital for buses and emergency vehicles. It will remove a substantial portion of bus traffic, from the already congested entrance of Raigmore Hospital onto the B9006 and Inshes corridor.

This improvement has been an aspiration of all stakeholders for many years.
