Pupils at an Inverness primary will find getting there will be safer after councillors approved a Safer Routes to Schools project.
Members of Highland Council’s city committee voted in favour of the installation of one pair of road humps in King Street at the front entrance to St Joseph’s Primary School.
They are intended to reduce vehicle speeds at the school gate and the surrounding area.
As part of the council’s ongoing Safer Routes to School programme, the council’s road safety team has been working with staff at the school to update its school travel plan.
Inverness Provost Helen Carmichael said: “This is an excellent project which meets the clear aims of the Safer Routes to Schools initiative to improve child safety and save lives by encouraging sustainable and active travel.
“This goes hand-in-hand with the organisation’s aspirations and commitment in reducing the carbon footprint within Inverness.”
