Active travel opportunities in Broughty Ferry11/03/19
IMPROVEMENTS to paths and cycle ways in a Dundee community, as well as better links with other parts of the area, are up for discussion.
Residents of Broughty Ferry will be asked about the changes as part of the design of flood defence improvements from the Grassy Beach to the castle, and from the castle to Balmossie Rail Station/Dighty Burn.
Lynne Short convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said: “We’re working on proposals to improve that route, but we want to hear from local people about other things we might be able to put in place at the same time.
“In particular, whether and where walking and cycling links need to be better between the residential areas and the centre of the Ferry and the shore.
“Ultimately we’d like to create a continuous, off-road route that can be enjoyed by people making longer-distance journeys on the National Cycle Network as well as local, shorter walks and rides.”
Over the coming months people who live in the area will be asked for their feedback on draft proposals via an interactive website and map, on which they can add comments. There will also be opportunities to engage at Broughty Ferry Community Council, local schools, public events and via social media.
A final decision on the proposals will be made in late spring/early summer.
