HITRANS urges public to give views on 20-year vision for improved transport in Highlands and Islands

How can access to public and shared transport be improved in the Highlands and Islands? And how can walking, wheeling and cycling be made more accessible in communities across the region?

These are some of the issues being explored in a public consultation to shape a 20-year vision for transport improvements in the Highlands, Moray, Western Isles, Orkney and the Argyll and Bute local authority areas, according to the Inverness Courier. HITRANS, the Regional Transport Partnership for the Highlands and Islands, is seeking the views of the public on its new draft Regional Transport Strategy (RTS).

The statutory eight-week consultation period, which began yesterday, runs until Friday June 14 during which time people are invited to comment on the strategy and associated policies by completing a survey on the information provided.

The draft strategy has identified 11 themes each containing a set of policies to address the transport challenges and problems in the Highlands and Islands.

The final strategy will provide the framework for the development of transport in the region.
