New barriers have been laid in Academy Street in Inverness to create more space for pedestrians as coronavirus lockdown measures are eased.

The measure, making it easier and safer for people to access shops, workplaces and other services, while maintaining physical distancing comes ahead of the reopening of large parts of the retail sector on Monday.

The council has also published a number of temporary traffic orders for measures aimed at improving the safety of cyclists and pedestrians as they travel around other parts of Inverness too.

These include: the introduction of a temporary 20mph speed limit on various roads around the Crown area; a temporary one-way traffic and weight restriction at Inverness Castle; and a temporary one-way traffic and cycle contraflow on Ness Walk and Bught Road.

All details are published on the council’s website and on the consultation portal.

In addition to the traffic orders the council is also working on further traffic management measures for Millburn Road and Academy Street as part of the Spaces for People programme.
