The feasibility and viability of a new walkway and cycle path along the south bank of the River Clyde is confirmed by a feasibility study commissioned by Cambuslang Community Council and Healthy n Happy Community Development Trust. The path would run from Cambuslang Bridge to Dalmarnock Bridge along a 5km route and provide off-road access for people in Cambuslang and neighbouring communities to walk or cycle to the Cuningar Forest Park which is due to open in Spring 2016. John Bachtler, treasurer of Cambuslang Community Council, said: “This is a milestone in the Clyde Walkway and Cycle Path project. The feasibility study demonstrates that the idea of a new path along the south bank of the river is viable and would be a major new resource for the communities along the river, opening up new areas of woodland and access to the river. The study has found that there is significant potential demand for the new route and that it would attract leisure walkers/cyclists and commuters. However, the hard work starts now: we will need to raise significant funding and work with the landowners to plan the optimal route.” The steering group for the project comprises Cambuslang Community Council, Healthy n Happy, South Lanarkshire Council, the Forestry Commission, Clyde Gateway, SUSTRANS and the Central Scotland Green Network Trust. The group will be meeting shortly to discuss how the project can be taken forward. A summary of the feasibility study is available here.
