‘Strath’ path could improve safety
A path between Strathkinness and St Andrews would create a safer route for walkers and cyclists, it has been claimed.
North-East Fife SNP MP Stephen Gethins and SNP councillor Ann Verner have joined forces to make the sought-after path a reality.
They say the route running alongside the High Road would also address concerns about infrequent bus services.
Ms Verner, who lives in Strathkinness, said a path would cut car journeys and encourage people to walk from St Andrews.
“A footpath would be a huge benefit for so many people in Strath and I have made the case for this to Fife Council,” she said.
“We are not talking about a huge distance; just the section where the pavements on either side need linked.”
Mr Gethins added: “So many communities are enjoying the benefits of walkways and cycle paths, and people living in Strathkinness also deserve to be able to walk or cycle into St Andrews safely via this route.”
Fife Council said it would look into funding for the project.
