Transport Scotland have plans to re-design Academy Street, Inverness and the funding has been secured.
“Places for Everyone” is a scheme funded by the Scottish Government through Transport Scotland and is administered by Sustrans.
Funding has been secured through “Places for Everyone” for the design of Academy Street with the aim of making it a more attractive and healthier place for people walking, wheeling and cycling. A viable alternative cycle path to Academy Street will also be identified which enables cyclists to safely cross the city.
Before installing permanent measures, it was agreed that a full accessibility assessment would be undertaken, working with disability groups to ensure that all future plans for Spaces for People measures are safe for everyone.”
The link for you to view the plans and express your views is https://academystreetproposals.commonplace.is/
and I would encourage everyone to visit the site so that the views of those with mobility problems are heard.
