Active Travel projects

Clydesdale Active Travel studies

We want walking and cycling to be the natural choice for people for their local journeys. We are focusing on three studies in areas of Clydesdale, aimed at making walking and cycling in the region more convenient and attractive for all. There will also be an additional study taking an overview of the three combined areas.

Key aims of the studies include:

  • identifying the actual and perceived barriers to cycling for everyday journeys in and around the Clydesdale area
  • identifying a programme of recommendations to make active travel a viable option for everyday journeys in and around the towns, villages, and rural areas
  • encouraging a modal shift to walking and cycling
  • developing an aspirational active travel network plan, and promoting Clydesdale as a cycle-friendly area

The study area has been divided into 3 geographical areas:

  • Northwest Clydesdale
  • Northeast Clydesdale
  • South Clydesdale

These are as shown on the map below:

Have your say

In January and February 2023, we asked about your travel habits and views on walking and cycling conditions in and around three study areas to help us identify a future cycle network in principle. Our appointed consultant, Aecom have used the comments and observations gathered from the original survey to compile Draft Active Travel Studies for each geographical area.

We developed a survey to gather the public’s views on the draft proposed network for each of the study areas before finalising the studies. This survey closed on Friday 19 May 2023.

Please select and review the study most applicable to you from the list below.
