Walk, Cycle, Live Stirling
Stirling Council as one of the City Region Deal partners has a strategic vision for a world class active travel culture, supported by a world class active travel network. The Walk, Cycle, Live Stirling (WCLS) scheme 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’s City streets.
The WCLS scheme will improve active travel provision along two key traffic corridors in Stirling City, namely the University Corridor route connecting the University to Stirling Train Station, and the College Corridor route between Forth Valley College and the city centre. These in turn will link, through other projects to the Eastern Villages, the Hillfoots Villages of Clackmannanshire, to Alloa and on further to Falkirk as well as west to the Carse of Stirling villages and the Trossachs.
The scheme represents an investment in more than 6.5km of dedicated walking, cycling, and wheeling infrastructure. Improving active travel options around the city, 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.
