Inverness road scheme moves to detailed design stage
The Highland Council has appointed Capita Symonds to assist the its in-house project design unit in providing detailed design for the new £27.2m Inverness West Link Road.
The new road, west of the city, will link the southern distributor road at Dores Road with the A82 trunk road and will also include a new crossing of the River Ness and the Caledonian Canal.
Detailed design work includes the preparation of the drawings and details and the specifications for each construction element of the project to pave the way for tender documents. It will include the information required by the Highland Council to obtain all statutory consents, including traffic orders, land acquisition and planning.
Councillor Graham Phillips, chairman of the council’s transport environmental and community services committee, said: “This is a significant piece of work, which will help move the project forward and ensure we maintain momentum to enhance land use planning and deliver an efficient transport network to the south and west of the city.”
