Walk, Cycle, Live Stirling

Walk, Cycle, Live Stirling

Two key active travel routes that would allow Stirling to operate as a sustainable and vibrant city which is attractive to businesses, residents and visitors.

safe & attractive

Central to Stirling Council’s vision is the development of a safe and attractive network linking residential areas and the city centre with key destinations including Stirling University, Forth Valley College, Castle Business Park, Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument. The City Boulevard route will improve the environment and streetscape along the A811 from Dumbarton Road, along Albert Place, to Upper Craigs. This includes wider pavements, creating a boulevard feel and connecting the city centre to the proposed new City Park.

Local Benefits

The University Route will improve the environment and streetscape along Goosecroft Road, Cowane Street, Lower Bridge Street and Back O’Hill Road, making these roads accessible to all users and redesigning road crossings to improve accessibility.
