Neilston to Uplawmoor Cycle Path.

Since 2019, representatives from NDT and Uplawmoor Development Trust have been working together to develop proposals for a scenic, fully accessible, off-road link between the two communities, providing improved  connections with schools, public transport and local facilities.

A generous grant from Sustrans, the national walking and cycling charity funded by Transport Scotland, has supported concept design work, plus community, landowner, council and wider engagement about the project. The proposed route is part of ERC’s Strategic Cycle Corridor no 1, and the nationwide effort to create great, safe routes and ‘Places for Everyone’. Active travel within Neilston and beyond has long been a focus for NDT.

Community discussion of the project has been on hold since the COVID emergency, but we hope that the conversation about this exciting prospect for our communities will recommence soon.
