Delivering a shared Council roads and transportation service across East and South Ayrshire

South Ayrshire Council - Ayr to Barassie Active Travel Route

South Ayrshire Council and the Ayrshire Roads Alliance have launched a series of consultations inviting the public to provide feedback on an exciting new project – The Ayrshire Link – that will create a new active travel route from Ayr to Barassie.

More than just a walking and cycle path, it is expected that the ten-mile route will encourage active travelling to work, become a new tourist destination, improve health and wellbeing, and connect communities feeding into a wider active travel network.

About The Ayrshire Link 

The Ayrshire Link is a proposed active travel route spanning ten miles from Ayr to Barassie.

The designated route, which is currently being consulted on, will begin at Ayr Esplanade and end at Barassie and is designed for the safe and accessible use by walkers, cyclists and wheelchair users, encouraging physical travel over vehicle travel.

The project is being co-ordinated by Ayrshire Roads Alliances, a public sector partnership between East and South Ayrshire Councils, in collaboration with Sweco, a European design, engineering and regulatory consultancy focused on making societies more sustainable.

Following a period of consultation, the design team will produce detailed proposals for submission to South Ayrshire Council for planning.  If successful, it is anticipated that work will start in 2025 and take two to three years to complete.

Further information is available on The Ayrshire Link website.
