Congratulations to Sustrans and Stirling Council
Sustrans Scotland and Stirling Council were recognised for their work in Dunblane alongside representatives of local community groups at the 2017 Cycle-Rail Awards.
The project has improved access to the station for people travelling on foot and by cycle through the installation of shared use facilities and the creation of new high quality accessible civic spaces on Stirling Road.
Together with Stirling Council, Sustrans Scotland’s Street Design Team carried out public engagement and the concept designs for the project. The council then led on delivery of the project, with ongoing support, guidance and funding coming from Sustrans’ Community Links team.
Funded by Transport Scotland, Sustrans’ Street Design projects work to bring communities together to help them re-imagine and re-design their streets and public spaces so that they are safer and more attractive places to live in and travel through.
The Scottish Government continues to increase investment in active and sustainable transport. We have invested over £217 million in active travel since the start of the 2011 spending review, including this year, and as announced in the Programme for Government, we have doubled the active travel budget from around £40m to £80m a year from 2018-2019.
