Aviemore to Carrbridge – consultation on route options
Public asked for views on options for a Non-Motorised User route between Aviemore and Carrbridge
A virtual public exhibition is starting today (17 November) for four weeks and will update local communities, cyclists, equestrians and walkers on the corridors and route options within these corridors emerging from the Aviemore to Carrbridge Non-Motorised User (NMU) Route Study.
A number of different routes and sub-options to these routes have been identified following the two corridor options previously identified and consulted on at a public exhibition in September 2019.
The public are being urged to visit the virtual exhibition and give their feedback on the emerging routes.
As part of the public engagement for this scheme, we will also be holding a live online webinar on 24 November, where the project team will be happy to explain aspects of the project in more detail and answer any queries you may have.
Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity Michael Matheson said:
"The Scottish Government is committed to promoting active travel in Scotland. As part of that commitment, Transport Scotland is continuing to work with the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA), The Highland Council (THC), Highlands and Islands Transport Partnership (HITRANS) and Sustrans to deliver the Aviemore to Carrbridge Non-Motorised User (NMU) route study.
"The design work for the Aviemore to Carrbridge NMU Route continued during the lockdown, whilst complying with the Government’s physical distancing guidance, and we are now able to update local communities, cyclists, equestrians and walkers on the emerging route options now identified following on from last year’s public exhibitions.
"I would urge anyone with an interest in this scheme to view the virtual exhibition and give us their views on the proposed options as we look to identify a preferred corridor option next year."
