Views sought on preferred route for Aviemore to Carrbridge path
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 May 25 and Carrbridge on May 26, and attended by the Transport Scotland project team and its design consultants.
In addition, a new virtual exhibition will go live at noon on May 25 on the project website for a period of three 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.”
