New year – new active travel improvements

Published on Friday 19 January 2024

Following the recently completed improvements of the National Cycle Network route 1 at Barry Station, work has now started on the next section at Carnoustie.

Starting at where the new path at Barry Station finishes, this section features a walking, wheeling and cycling path separated from vehicles via a raised kerb over its 1.2km length.

Cycle network route improvements at Carnoustie

This high-quality infrastructure for active travel is being delivered by Tayside Contracts and runs from the Carnoustie Golf Links practice area through to Links Parade. The work has local diversions up until its completion by the end of March.

This project is supported by funding from the Scottish Government through Sustrans Scotland’s Network Development Fund and delivered in partnership with Angus Council and Carnoustie Golf Links.

The completion of this section, as part of the overall upgrading works, will improve the safety and enjoyment for users and further enhance the National Cycle Network route 1 in Angus.
