Girvan to Grangestone Active Travel Route

South Ayrshire Council and The Ayrshire Roads Alliance have launched a series of community engagement events and initiatives, inviting residents, businesses, and commuters to provide feedback on a walking, wheeling, and cycling route between Girvan and Grangestone Industrial Estate.

The route will create a safe and attractive environment for walking, wheeling, and cycling, making active travel accessible for everyday journeys undertaken by the communities within Girvan and by employees at Grangestone Industrial Estate.

Further information is available to download and print: Girvan to Grangestone Active Travel Route - Information (PDF 2550Kb)

The proposed route has still to be decided, so at the community engagement events people will be invited to view the proposed routes and options.

By sharing your feedback on the potential route ideas at this early stage, we can ensure that the final Girvan to Grangestone active travel route meets the needs and ambitions of the community.

About the Girvan to Grangeston Active Travel Route

The Ayrshire Roads Alliance are in the process of creating a walking, wheeling, and cycling (known as ‘active travel’) route between Girvan in South Ayrshire and Grangestone Industrial Estate.  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 review of the existing active travel provision between Girvan and Grangeston, it became clear that the area could benefit from a new and/or improved walking, wheeling, and cycling route. The route has been broken up into sections, with each section having at least two route options.

These route options, and their respective strengths and limitations can be viewed on the project webpage.

The community engagement is now live and will run for six weeks, closing on Sunday 30 July 2023, after which the design team will put together a feasibility study and concept design will begin.

Funding for the project was awarded by Sustrans through Places for Everyone. Places for Everyone is an active travel infrastructure programme supported by the Scottish Government and administered by Sustrans.
