Chance to have your say on traffic management during city events


The Highland Council is hosting a public consultation drop in session in Inverness on the 19th of July to hear your views on proposals to improve event traffic management in the Bught Park Area and proposals for the Riverside Way walking and cycling improvements. 

This area of the city is well used for major social, sporting and recreational events throughout the year such as Race for Life, Loch Ness Marathon, and the Civic Bonfire. 

Last month the Council announced that Transport Consultants AECOM have been appointed to prepare design options to improve the ‘Riverside Way. The project covers the area between the west side of the River Ness and the A82 Trunk Road (Glenurquhart Road) and the local roads of Tomnahurich Street and Young Street, stretching from the city centre to the new West Link.  

The drop in event takes place at Highland Rugby Club, Canal Park on Thursday 19 July from 5pm to 8pm. 

Inverness West Ward Councillor, Graham Ross said: “The drop in session is a chance for people to come along and let us know their views on any current issues and come forward with ideas on what improvements could be made. I hope as many local residents come along as possible as their thoughts and views will assist the development of future designs and identify preferred solutions to how we manage traffic during events.” 

Anyone unable to come along on Thursday can still pass on their comments and any suggestions by e-mailing
