A path that would be shared by pedestrians and cyclists has been proposed for a busy Inverness road.

Called an active travel route, it would be constructed along Millburn Road to help connect the city with a new campus at Beechwood on the A9.

A £388,000 funding package is available to cover the cost of building the path.

The City of Inverness committee will be asked to approve the plan on Monday. If given the go-ahead, work to construct the route could start in October.

It has been proposed as part of the planned East Inverness Active Travel Corridor.

Highland Council said the corridor would provide walkers and cyclists a safe and attractive link between the city centre and sites such as Culloden Battlefield.
