A meeting is due to take place to update the public on the progress being made with the Riverside Way works in Inverness.

The meeting, which is open to anyone to attend, will be held at the Community Hall of St Andrew's Cathedral from 7pm on Thursday, March 14.

The Riverside Way project aims to improve active travel provision along the popular route of Ness Walk and Bught Road for those walking, wheeling, and cycling.

City Leader Councillor Ian Brown said: “The project team will be on hand from 7pm to illustrate how the works are going to improve the route so it can safely be enjoyed by more locals and visitors to the city.

"This is a great opportunity for people to come along and find out how progress is going and get any questions they have answered by the project team.

“Every effort is being made to keep disruption to a minimum during the works, but if anyone has any particular concerns, they are welcome to come and speak to the team.”

The meeting will be chaired by the Council’s site representative and senior engineer, Graeme Campbell who will be joined by representatives from the contractor, Wills Bros.

An update on progress will be given followed by an opportunity for the public to field question and raise any concerns.

Work on the project started on October 30.

Improvements underway, funded through SUSTRANS Places for Everyone programme, include the widening of footpaths, a segregated cycle contraflow lane, formalised parking arrangements, and changes to junction layouts.
