ROUTE options for the Inverness bypass should be an election issue next year, according to the West Link Protest Group.

Members, who have set up a page on social networking website Facebook and made an online campaign video on YouTube (above), believe the decision should be made by councillors who are elected in May.

The group is fighting against any threat to the natural beauty of the riverside, woodland and recreational areas at Whin Park and Canal Park posed by development of the route.

“This is a seminal decision in respect of the future of Inverness,” said John West, group spokesman.

“This should be the first deliberation of the new council, with their refreshed mandate. The new crossing can be an election issue and the people’s verdict demonstrated.”

He also suggested retaining the status quo should be a option.
