Funding for Community Project in Nairn - lighting on path for bairns going the back way into Millbank School

One of the funding projects announced by Liz MacDonald at the area committee meeting in Kinguissie yesterday was a lighting improvement for pupils heading to Millbank via Mill Road. 

Through the Cycling Walking and Safer Streets Programme funded by the Scottish Government - pupils walking to and from Millbank Primary School in Nairn are to benefit from the installation of street lighting at an estimated cost of £8,000. New lighting will improve safety and access to the school from Mill Road by lighting the lane between housing and the railway bridge. 

Allan Bryce, Highland Council’s Road Safety Officer said: “The improved lighting will encourage residents to walk to school all year round when the daylight and visibility is poor especially in winter months.”
