Fibre-optic cable installation works along Academy Street in Inverness will start on Monday as part of the ongoing roll-out of the high-speed broadband.

The CityFibre project works along Academy Street will be carried out in stages over a four-week period.

The contractor will have to temporarily remove the current Covid-19 social spacing barriers to enable the works to progress. This will be done in short sections, as the project progresses from the Union Street end towards Chapel Street, with the barriers replaced as soon as practicable.

A Highland council spokesman said: “We apologise for any inconvenience but with many local businesses currently shut and only essential journeys permitted we hope that any temporary disruption to the Spaces For People measures along Academy Street will be kept to a minimum. Work will be phased and carried out in sections and we will be closely monitoring progress.”
