Cycle Friendly Kingussie (KCDC) has secured funding from Sustrans as part of their “ Places for Everyone” grant scheme to develop plans to improve the Spey street/Ruthven Road junction.
We have now received design proposals, the overarching concept is to make the junction more pedestrian and cycling orientated, along with acting as a high-quality public realm gateway feature for visitors arriving into Kingussie from both the Railway Station and the Speyside Way. The proposals include a significant reduction in the size of the existing bell mouth, which in turn provides space for new paving and footway area. These proposals will link into the work being undertaken in the Gynack Memorial Garden.
Below is a visualisation, a pdf of the outline plan can be viewed and downloaded here. Our consultant team are going through pre-planning advice with Highland Council. For more information, comments and feedback please contact Bobkinnaird@btinternet.com.
