Consultation on Aviemore to Carrbridge non-motorised user route

Minister for Zero Carbon Buildings, Active Travel and Tenants’ Rights - Patrick Harvie

Public to be asked for views on the Aviemore to Carrbridge NMU preferred route design. 

Exhibitions are to be held later this month to let the public comment on the preferred Non-Motorised User (NMU) route between Aviemore and Carrbridge.

The in-person events will be held in Aviemore on Wednesday 25 May and Carrbridge on Thursday 26 May, where the Transport Scotland project team and their design consultants will be available to answer any questions.

In addition, for those unable to attend in person a new virtual exhibition will go live at noon on 25 May on the project website for a period of 3 weeks. 

Minister for Active Travel, Patrick Harvie 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, The Highland Council, Highlands and Islands Transport Partnership and Sustrans to deliver the Aviemore to Carrbridge Non-Motorised User (NMU) route. 

“Having identified the 10 km segregated preferred route for walking, cycling, wheeling and horse riding last year, we are now engaging with the public in advance of a planning application for the scheme, expected in the summer.

“When completed, the scheme will provide a safer, more direct route between Aviemore and Carrbridge. It will also link up with existing NMU routes in the area.

"I would urge anyone with an interest to visit one of the public exhibitions or view the virtual exhibition and give us their views on the preferred option."
