NORTH Ayrshire Council are looking to make 'active travel improvements' to a main Garnock Valley road.

The local authority is seeking Sustrans’ Places for Everyone (PfE) funding to introduce the changes on the B777 corridor between Kilbirnie and Beith, Caledonian Road, and connections to Garnock Community Campus.

The proposals aim to maximise active travel options for people of all ages and abilities, and to create a safe and attractive active travel network the community can use for everyday journeys.

And now the council are looking for residents to provide their view on the proposed improvements to walking, cycling and wheeling opportunities on the route.

An online survey has been created as a platform for this, and can be found online - - and will remain live until May 14.

Additionally, a drop-in community event will be held in Bridgend Community Centre, Kilbirnie, on Wednesday, May 31, between 3pm and 7pm where all are welcome to come along and share their views.

The information provided will be collated and will help to inform the development of concept designs for the project.

Following on from this, there will be other opportunities to comment on the concept designs.

Councillor Tony Gurney, cabinet member for economy and climate change at North Ayrshire Council, said: “The ambition behind this work is to improve sustainable travel options for everyone who uses the wider B777 corridor between Beith and Kilbirnie.

“As well as increasing the attractiveness and safety of the route, it’s also about creating opportunities to enable local communities to reduce their dependency on cars and use different forms of active travel.

“I would ask anyone who uses the route to take a few moments to fill out the survey or attend the drop-in session.”
