Active Travel projects
Leadhills Village Active Travel project
We want to make it easier for residents to travel on foot and by bike more often for their local journeys, by improving the opportunities for, and tackling barriers to active travel. We want walking and cycling to be the natural choice for people to make for their everyday journeys.
The Rural Development Trust held an exhibition in October 2021 and the measures identified have resulted from the outcome of the feedback.
The Leadhills Village active travel project includes the introduction of a 20mph speed limit within Leadhills, a painted pedestrian surface on Station Road, and enhanced village gateway features. Funding has been granted to progress the design of this project and we are currently seeking views on the proposals.
Benefits of the scheme
- Encourage walking and cycling in the area
- More connected communities
- Improve road safety
- Improve air quality
In addition, these measures intend to impact the behaviour of drivers, in particular, on the B797 by using visual elements to reduce the road width whilst retaining the characteristics of the Village.
