MORE cash is being earmarked for cycling improvements in Inverclyde, as work continues on widening a path on Greenock Esplanade.
Another £150,000 is to be spent by Inverclyde Council on various measures to enhance routes, on top of £585,000 received under the Scottish Government’s ‘Spaces for People’ initiative.
The first £200,000 of that is going towards upgrading facilities for bikes from Container Way in Greenock town centre to Battery Park, including widening the path on The Esplanade, pictured. | More details in previous story
The additional money comes from the Government’s Cycling, Walking and Safer Routes scheme.
It is being proposed that this will be invested in upgrading sections of the N75 cycle route including the link from Lady Octavia Park to the A8; Greenock Waterfront to James Watt Dock and from there to Kingston Dock and Port Glasgow Town Centre.
Work is also proposed on the route from Lady Octavia Park to Kilmacolm.
