Former go-kart track cycling training road signs no more

Murd Dunbar reported to the River CC folkies last week that the road signs on the former go-kart track down at the riverside on Mill Road have been taken away by Highland Council staff. After the go-kart heyday the track was converted into a very impressive cycling proficiency training area. This project was the brainchild of two formidable Nairn District Councillors of that era, Meg Anderson and Chrissie Ellen. For many years it was very busy and then official use declined but every year you could still see some parents supervising their children in this area. As Murd put it on Wednesday night: "People took their kids there and showed them a wee bit of road sense."
River Commuinity Council are to write to the Highland Council TECS department in an attempt to have the signs returned.
