HIGHLAND Council has begun work to create safe active travel paths across Inverness during the Covid-19 lockdown and recovery periods.

The first signs marking out the proposed green route were erected yesterday (Wednesday).

The aim is to ensure walkers, cyclists and other 'wheelers' – particularly key workers – can safely travel across the city to health centres and other important workplaces while maintaining social distancing.

An initial funding package of just over £750,000 has been secured to realise the temporary Spaces for People vision, which officials say could become the template for permanent change in the city's transport system.
