A CYCLE path linking Battery Park and Container Way in Greenock is nearing completion
The route includes new segregated sections — some permanent, some not, depending on usage — on parts of Eldon Street, Brougham Street, Grey Place and Dalrymple Street.
The work is taking place as part of the ‘Spaces for People’ pandemic initiative, which is funded by the Scottish Government and delivered through charity Sustrans Scotland.
The existing shared foot and cycle path between Battery Park and the Esplanade has been widened with bolt-down kerbs and bollards installed to create a dedicated cycling lane.
This was initially agreed as a temporary measure but may be retained depending on usage numbers.
