The Highland Council and Sustrans are developing an active travel network for Inverness. The project will create a network of high quality walking and cycling routes through and across the city, encouraging sustainable travel, promoting community wellbeing, creating safer places for people and stimulating economic growth.
erz Landscape Architects are working with the Highland Council and Sustrans to create a Design Guide for the network. The Design Guide will shape the look and feel of the routes, including the design of wayfinding elements and the identity and branding for the network. Over the next few months they will be running a series of Community Activity Days, each focussing on a different route in the network. The Activity Days are an opportunity for you to get involved with the changes, don’t miss your chance to take part and have your say!
“We are really excited to be contributing to such an ambitious and visionary project which tackles key issues for the future of cities; sustainable travel and community wellbeing. The Activity Days will be a fantastic opportunity for people to come and tell us their thoughts and explore in different ways how the proposals will have a positive impact in Inverness. We look forward to meeting you soon.”
erz Director Felicity Steers
The River Ness will be home to a key route in the network and is the focus of the first Community Activity Day on Saturday 19th October. Three free events will be running through the day at key locations along the river, we hope to see you there!
