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. This Options Appraisal will then be followed by the identification of a preferred route.
