Active Travel Route
With a busy main road running through Culbokie, CCT is keen to respond to community concerns about travel safety issues. We want to make it easier, safer and more attractive for everyone to get about the village, enjoy the local facilities and to access public transport, on foot or by bicycle.
We were delighted to be awarded funding from Sustrans in 2019 to undertake a feasibility study and develop designs for an active travel route running through the village and out to the A9 where more frequent buses are available. Read our full introduction to the proposals for more details.
A firm of consultants, Pell Frischmann, was appointed to undertake the feasibility and design work. This is a highly consultative process involving several stages to reach a design that addresses community concerns and physical constraints.

The feasibility study is available here.
Funding and Phasing
So long as we can develop a good workable design, Sustrans will fund 50% of the construction cost of the route – but that still leaves us 50% to find from other sources. To increase our chances of finding match funding we have decided to divide the project into two ‘bite-sized’ chunks. In phase 1 we will focus on the section within the village.
Our consultants have been working on initial design work for the route, but in view of restrictions on gatherings due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we are unable to organise meetings in order to get feedback from the community. We will keep this situation under review.
