The new bridge provides a link between Inverness Campus and Inverness Retail Park.

A new link bridge at Inverness Campus opens to the public today.

The crossing, which links the campus with Inverness Retail and Business Park, was officially opened for use today; less than two years after contractors broke ground.

It’s hoped the facility will make it easier for NHS workers to walk and cycle between their premises in Stoneyfield Business Park, Raigmore Hospital and Assynt House.

Ruaraidh Macneil, HIE’s Inverness Campus project director, said: “The new north bridge enhances the excellent footpaths and cycleways already in place.

“It’s particularly heartening to know that NHS Highland workers are finding it useful at this very challenging time for them. At HIE we are pleased to be helping to ensure that people can walk, cycle and wheel during this public health emergency whilst physically distancing and keeping safe from traffic.”

The bridge crossing the main Inverness to Perth Railway Line was created following a £3.2million investment by campus developer Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) alongside funding from the Scottish Government’s Sustrans Scotland’s Places for Everyone programme.
