River Ness flood alleviation scheme
A 24.75 million project started in August 2013 and is due to be completed in Spring 2015. The Scottish Government is funding 80 per cent of the cost of the building work, the balance being met by the Highland Council.
The flood defences will protect 800 homes and 200 businesses in the city centre and will feature a public arts programme to complement streetscape enhancements.
