Bike link plan gets un­der way

Rutherglen Reformer - - Front Page -

Plans to link Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang through a new cy­cle route are be­ing pro­posed.

An ap­pli­ca­tion to ob­tain the fund­ing to cre­ate a fea­si­bil­ity study has been made by the groups be­hind the plan, Cam­bus­lang Com­mu­nity Coun­cil and the Healthy‘n’Happy Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Trust.

It’s the lat­est move as they con­tinue with the am­bi­tious Cam­Glen Bike Town ini­tia­tive.

The pro­posal is for a new cy­cle route and wood­land walk along the south bank of the River Clyde, by up­grad­ing an his­toric right of way.

Some sec­tions of the route are al­ready in good con­di­tion, but oth­ers re­quire work.

It is es­ti­mated the min­i­mum cost of the project would be be­tween £500,000 and £600,000.

Dis­cus­sions are cur­rently be­ing held by South La­nark­shire Coun­cil, Clyde Gate­way, the Forestry Com­mis­sion, cy­cling char­ity Sus­trans and the Cen­tral Scot­land Green Net­work Trust.
