Kilmarnock Infinity Loop
Ayrshire Roads Alliance (ARA) is working in partnership with East Ayrshire Council, East Ayrshire Leisure and Sweco to create a circular network of walking, wheeling, and cycling routes within and around Kilmarnock. The project will develop a 26km ‘figure of eight’ circular network of pathways around the town.
Public engagement has been launched to capture your views on the proposals for route 1 (purple line) and route 2 (orange line), as shown in the map below. The routes will create a safe and attractive environment for walking, wheeling, and cycling, connecting residential areas with key services and leisure destinations.
The consultation will close at 23:59 on Sunday 12 November 2023.
By sharing your views on the proposed design of Route 1 and Route 2 of the Kilmarnock Infinity Loop you can help shape the future of walking, wheeling, and cycling (known as ‘active travel’) in Kilmarnock and ensure the final routes are reflective of the needs and ambitions of the community.
Before submitting your feedback, please view the design proposals in more detail on the project page

About Kilmarnock Infinity Loop
Ayrshire Roads Alliance (ARA) is working in partnership with East Ayrshire Council, East Ayrshire Leisure and Sweco to create a circular network of walking, wheeling, and cycling routes within and around Kilmarnock. Wheeling refers to an alternative means of travel to foot/pedestrian-based mobility, such as travel by wheelchair, mobility scooter or wheeled walker.
Following the initial engagement in 2021 on the project vision for the Kilmarnock Infinity Loop, we are now seeking your views on the key design and landscape improvements for Route 1 and Route 2.
