Regional Active Travel Network for North East Scotland.

17 Apr 2024
NESTRAN Aberdeenshire Network

Members of the public are being asked to give their views on a Regional Active Travel Network for North East Scotland.

Active travel is people-powered transport: walking, wheeling (such as wheelchairs, scooters, prams and buggies) and cycling. Improving routes for these options can help more people get to where they want to go, improve people’s health and reduce carbon emissions.

Councillor Alan Turner, chair of Nestrans and our Infrastructure Services Committee, says: “We all have much to benefit if more people could walk, wheel and cycle more often. Delivering high quality routes everywhere through the region will take many years, but by setting out the regional network now we want to show our ambition for change and, more importantly, make a strong case for investment to come to the North East."

Nestrans, Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council are working together to develop a Regional Active Travel Network. This will create a comprehensive walking, wheeling, and cycling network in North East Scotland.

The aim of the Regional Active Travel Network is to help more people to choose active travel when appropriate, when they want to, and to ensure that the option they choose is available, attractive and safe.

A draft network has been developed, and we would like to hear from you to help to shape it further.

To view the proposals and provide your views, please visit Regional Active Travel Network StoryMap. The consultation will be available until Sunday 2nd June.
