Riverside Way strategic active travel corridor made permanent

A Road Traffic Regulation Order is to be made permanent for Ness Walk – Bught Road in Inverness.

Following consideration of the outcomes of a statutory consultation process, Members of The Highland Council’s City of Inverness Area Committee have agreed to make permanent the ‘One Way with Cycle Contraflow Ness Walk Bught Road Order 2022’.

Provost and Leader of Inverness and Area Cllr Helen Carmichael said: “The Riverside Way is one of a series of strategic active travel corridors which will help to shift transport behaviour in the city by getting people of out their cars and walking, wheeling and cycling more in their regular everyday journeys.

“This project supports the council’s climate change commitments towards supporting carbon reduction opportunities.”

The Riverside Way active travel scheme - which is fully funded through Sustrans’ – is part of the Inverness City Active Travel Network, meeting the needs of users across the wider Inverness area.

Following committee’s decision today, Council Officers will implement the agreed Traffic Order, and will continue to liaise and work with stakeholders on the longer-term designs for the Riverside Way.
