LOCAL residents are being urged to have their say on the future of active travel.

A consultation on walking, wheeling, and cycling in the west of Scotland has been launched by Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT).

Residents will be asked to highlight any existing problems or barriers relating to active travel along with potential opportunities that could be developed in the future.

SPT Chair Councillor Stephen Dornan said: “By better understanding people’s views on active travel and knowing more about the barriers and obstacles they face while doing so, we can start to look at solutions that will help more people choose to complete more of their journeys by active modes.

“I encourage everyone to participate in the consultation, by completing the survey and attending our online webinar, to help shape the future of how our communities see active travel can include and benefit everyone.”

The consultation is made up of a digital and printable survey and is supported by an online story map and workshop.

It will officially close on Sunday, November 12.

It is hoped that it will play a key role in the development of SPT’s Regional Active Travel Strategy which is being developed in partnership with Transport Scotland and Sustrans.
