£250k works for Perthshire foot and cycle path begin

Work on the paths network has begun
Work on the paths network has begun

Works to create a foot and cycle path in a Perthshire village have begun this week.

The £250,000 works began on the National Cycle Network (NCN) 77 at Almondbank on Monday.

The path will be closed throughout the work – set to last for at least 10 weeks – with a diversion put in place.

This comes as part of the development of the River Tay Way, a new long-distance walk and cycle route between Perth and Kenmore.

Following the Tay, the path aims to connect Perth, Luncarty, Stanley, Dunkeld and Birnam, Aberfeldy and Kenmore.

It is hoped this will enable low carbon, active travel, and will generate additional local economic income for the area.

Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust (PKCT) Strategic Routes Officer, Andrew Barrie is managing the project.

He said: “Improving this well-used section of the NCN 77 will give locals and visitors a good quality and safe route all the way into Perth’s city centre that can be used in all weathers and will likely lead to greater use given Bertha Park High School has opened up nearby.

“We would ask the public to please stay off the path while works are underway for their own safety and to prevent any delays for the contractors.

“We’re keen to get these upgrades done as quickly as possible so that everyone can enjoy this popular route.”
