Views wanted on new Dunoon active travel route

Dunoon to hunters quay active travel route meeting

Plans to link Dunoon and Hunters Quay with a new active travel route will make it easier and safer to walk, cycle and wheel for residents and visitors.

Argyll and Bute Council has launched a public consultation on plans to create the route and is asking for the feedback on the proposals from the local community.

To view the designs and leave feedback, visit https://tinyurl.com/Dunoon1.

A public drop-in event will take place on 16 May 2023 at Queens Hall, from 3:30pm to 7:30pm. This is an opportunity to find out more about the proposals, share your views and speak to the team.

The new route will:

  • Improve the walking, wheeling and cycling environment between Dunoon and Hunters Quay ferry terminals.
  • Link key destinations along the route such as Kirn, Dunoon Town Centre or the Riverside Leisure Centre.
  • Create safe and attractive connections to the route from the side streets, laying the basis for a future active travel network

Councillor Andrew Kain, Policy Lead for Transport and Infrastructure:

“Delivering active travel routes which offer our communities better opportunities for safe cycling and walking is a key element of our commitment to creating a healthy, climate friendly environment in Argyll and Bute.

We want to listen to as many views as possible on the new proposals for Dunoon to help progress our plans to benefit local residents and visitors to the area.”

Transport Scotland is funding the project, administered through Sustrans’ Places for Everyone.
