A temporary pathway has been installed on the road next to the Northern Meeting Park while major refurbishment work is carried out.

The walkway runs alongside scaffolding in Ardross Street, and will remain in place for the next six months.

The move to create the walkway was taken in a bid to accommodate the high levels of foot traffic in the street, owing to its popularity as a key tour bus pick-up and drop-off point in Inverness.

“Given the significant foot traffic in this area, including from tour buses dropping off and picking up passengers, we have collaborated closely with Highland Council, Inverness BID and the contractor to establish a temporary walkway,” said a spokesperson for High Life Highland.

“This measure ensures the safety of pedestrians who would otherwise be unable to utilise the pavement due to the presence of scaffolding. The temporary walkway will remain in place for approximately six months.”

The Northern Meeting Park is undergoing refurbishment and reconstruction work as part of three projects along the River Ness being supported with almost £20 million from the UK government’s Levelling Up Fund.
