The Highland Council is looking at ways to improve access to the city centre for residents, businesses, and visitors.  

This includes looking at prioritising buses on the network, particularly at known congestion points and creating a transport system that makes using more than one method of transport easier.

An online consultation, provided by WSP Consultants, has been running to provide people with the opportunity to be involved and give their views on the project to reduce transport carbon emissions in the city centre by providing viable, sustainable alternatives to the private car.

The project aims to:

•  Increase the number of bus passengers travelling to, from and through Inverness

•  Reduce car dependence of suburban and smaller-town residents travelling into the city

• Improve the sustainability of the routes to the city centre

Chair of the Environment and Infrastructure Committee, Cllr Ken Gowans said:

“I encourage anyone who has not yet taken part in the short survey to do so as the feedback we receive will help to shape the next stage of the project.

“It’s about understanding how people travel into and around the city centre and why they travel this way, and what could make it easier for them to travel sustainably.”

The survey is available until Monday the 5th of December at 5pm.
