An active travel project in Clydebank has been awarded a six-figure funding boost.

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.

For Clydebank, a total of £100,000 has been provided for a cycleway along Kilbowie Road.

Ross Greer, who represents the area as Green MSP for West Scotland, welcomed the funding for the project.

He said: "I am delighted that we are delivering this investment and helping to build greener, safer and more accessible communities for people in Clydebank.

"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 Clydebank and I am proud that the Scottish Greens have delivered this funding and these improvements for the community."
