Socio-Economic impact of the Skye Bridge

This was commissioned by Highlands and Islands Enterprise to be undertaken in conjunction with Transport Research Laboratories as the first stage of a socio-economic impact study of the Skye Bridge. The objective of the first stage was to develop an appropriate research methodology with which to identify the socio-economic impacts of the Bridge on the economy of the Island of Skye and to provide a coherent research plan with which to assess the direction and magnitude of any effects which arose. In addition it had to provide a comprehensive baseline which detailed the current level and composition of socio-economic and transport related activity on both the Isle of Skye and its immediate mainland.
