Active Travel Routes
The strategic vision for Stirling and Clackmannanshire is for a world class active travel culture, supported by a world class active travel network. The Active Travel Programme and the schemes within will be a vital part of the active travel network and contributor to the active travel culture, making travel by walking, cycling, and wheeling for people of all ages and abilities easier in Stirling, Clackmannanshire, and the surrounding wider region.
The Active Travel Programme will improve active travel provision in the region which is at the heart of the region’s integrated transport network and is an essential element of the Stirling and Clackmannanshire City Region Deal, and respective Local Development Plans and Local Transport Strategies.The Active Travel Programme is being developed in partnership with Transport Scotland, aligning with the Government’s commitment to active and sustainable travel.
The Active Travel Programme represents an investment in more than 50km of dedicated walking, cycling, and wheeling infrastructure. Improving active travel options around the city of Stirling, specifically connecting public transport destinations to further and higher education facilities, will encourage those travelling to those destinations to choose active travel rather than single use vehicle. Achieving the shift to active travel will reduce road traffic, reduce carbon emissions in line with the climate emergency, while providing a healthier and more cost efficient mode of transport for users.
