Aviemore to Carrbridge non-motorised user route study

Overview

We are carrying out a route study into the potential non-motorised user (NMU) links for walking, cycling and equestrians between the communities of Aviemore and Carrbridge.

We, along with our design consultants Atkins Mouchel Joint Venture, have been working in consultation with Cairngorms National Park Authority, The Highland Council, Highlands and Islands Transport Partnership (HITRANS) and Sustrans since January 2019.

The first part of the route study covers a Baseline Assessment, which includes a review of existing policies, plans and NMU routes in the area, data collection and the identification and initial assessment of corridors where an NMU route can be located.

The second part of the route study covers an Options Appraisal which will assess the impacts and benefits of the route corridors in more detail and include a recommendation for a preferred route.

Community engagement

Community engagement is a priority with all of our projects and we will engage with local communities and seek public feedback at various stages of the route study.

Public Exhibitions – 25 and 26 September 2019

Public exhibitions are being held on 25 and 26 September to provide an update on the ongoing Aviemore to Carrbridge non-motorised user (NMU) route study.
