Temporary footpath and lane closures at Raigmore Interchange for works on Raigmore Active Travel Link

A project to make it easier for people in Inverness to walk and cycle is gathering pace.

The Raigmore Active Travel Link will create a safe path from Golden Bridge to the Raigmore Interchange, allowing access to Inverness Shopping Park and onto Culloden from the Raigmore Interchange via Inverness Campus.

As part of the works, the existing footpath from the interchange to the Raigmore Estate at the end of MacKintosh road will be closed from May 4 until September.

A lane closure will be in place from May 3 until May 5 at the Raigmore Interchange slip road from the A9 northbound.

One lane of the Raigmore Interchange slip road with be closed from May 3-5. This will impact those travelling north on the A9 Aberdeen to Inverness road.

Bus services will not be impacted.

Contractors to attend online meeting to answer questions

Contractor Pat Munro is leading the project, and will provide local residents with an update at a community council meeting via Zoom tomorrow from 7pm. Highland Council will also be in attendance.

Questions can be submitted in advance by emailing raigmoreatl@whalelikefish.co.uk or visit the Raigmore Active Travel Link website to find out how to join the meeting.

Mark Smith, contracts manager for the firm, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience that this footpath and lane closure may cause. The closure is necessary to allow us to carry out the work safely and efficiently and we thank you for your patience.”

Pat Munro’s Civil Engineering team will begin preparation work to establish an active travel link in the Raigmore area…
