Highland Council to start work on Inverness West Link

Highland Council has given the go-ahead for preliminary work to start on the planned Inverness West Link.

The scoping study will examine the environmental impact of the road, which could cost £27.2m.

The local authority used delegated powers to push ahead with the investigative work.

The West Link has been proposed as a solution to city centre congestion. It would cross the River Ness and Caledonian Canal.
