The Inverness West Link
December 2018: Stage 2 of The Inverness West Link has gone out to tender.
Stage 2 will start May 2019 and construction will continue through to December 2020.
This stage will provide an additional swing bridge over the canal which will mean fewer delays from the bridge opening to allow canal traffic to pass. The two bridges will work in tandem to make sure one route is always available to traffic.

This uses land currently used by Torvean Golf Club. The construction of the new course and club house to the north of the A82 is progressing well and is due for completion in time to allow the relocation of the Torvean Golf Club to the new King’s Course in advance of the Stage 2 Works.
The Community Liaison Group will be set up again for the duration of Stage 2 and will keep all stakeholders informed of progress. The minutes of these group meetings will be made available here.

Stage 1 involved the building of a new bridge over the River Ness and work to reconfigure Canal Parks resulting in the modern facilities now available to Highland Rugby Club at the stunning new Can Parks Pavilion. The facility is managed for us by High Life Highland and is available for use by the community. Caley Thistle football club are already making use of the facility for training.
