Scotland to spend £3.9million to improve cycle routes

Scotland’s Transport Minister, Keith Brown has announced that almost £4million is going to be spent on improving cycle routes and providing better bike access to train staions in the country.
The cash is part of a £21million investment in transport, and will also be spent on increasing parking for bikes within school grounds.
The thinking behind the plans is an attempt to encourage more and more people to cycle more in an attempt to improve fitness and general well-being, and to reduce the number of people using cars, thus reducing traffic on the roads.
The money will be divided as follows: £2.6million will deliver safe cycle routes in the Highlands in order to connect remote communities; £400,000will be spent on the Oban to Appin cycle route; £500,000 will improve access to railway stations on the Airdrie to Bathgate route; and £400,000 will be used to increase school parking.
