An active travel scheme in East Renfrewshire has been awarded £950,000 for phase two of the “A77 Active Corridor”, which includes cycleways and footway improvements.
The money is being provided by the Scottish Government’s Active Travel Transformation Fund to deliver ambitious, construction-ready active travel infrastructure schemes across the country.
Ross Greer, who represents the area as Green MSP for West Scotland, welcomed the funding for the projec
He said: “I am delighted that we are delivering this investment and helping to build greener, safer and more accessible communities for people in East Renfrewshire.
“We can ask people to walk, wheel and cycle – but if our streets are dangerous, our pavements blocked off or our traffic too congested and fast, they will not. That’s why this kind of improvement is so vital.
“The project will make a big difference to people in East Renfrewshire and I am proud that the Scottish Greens have delivered this funding and these improvements for the community.”
