Share your views on a new green route from Kirkcaldy to Kinghorn
Have your say on a new route for walking, wheeling and cycling between Kirkcaldy and Kinghorn.
Arup is working on behalf of SEStran (The South East of Scotland Transport Partnership) to understand the barriers and opportunities for walking, wheeling and cycling between the two communities.
You can learn about the project and share their comments in a virtual engagement room. The engagement survey within the room closes on Friday 26th January.
Peter Wooding Development Worker (Cycling Outreach) said: “Every day, lots of people travel between Kirkcaldy and Kinghorn to get to work and do their shopping. Despite the short distance between the two communities, there is no easy way to walk, wheel or cycle from one to the other.
“Creating more traffic-free routes is one of the key recommendations of our Fife Community Cycling Action Plan. A safe active travel route between Kirkcaldy and Kinghorn is an important way to encourage more people to make the journey in a sustainable way. It will also create better links from Kirkcaldy to other villages including Burntisland.”
“I encourage everyone who supports sustainable travel to take part in this consultation.”
Arup and SEStran are looking at options and preferred routes. These will build on the existing shared path between Burntisland and Kinghorn. They will also extend active travel facilities onward to Kirkcaldy. They will plan and design the new route to help connect the coastal communities with more sustainable modes of travel.
“We are thrilled to be developing proposals for high quality active travel facilities which will form part of a wider active travel network for the south-east of Scotland,” said a SEStran spokesperson.
“Through extensive community engagement and research, we have been seeking to design and to create solutions that address the needs of the community and help them travel more sustainably in the future.”
“We are confident that a high-quality active travel route will be a game-changer in terms of how the community travels between the villages and Kirkcaldy.”
We run a wide range of activities and events to help people change the way they travel. This includes cycle training, led bike rides and led walks. Taking part in our activities can increase your skills and confidence.|
