STONEYBURN TO FAULDHOUSE PATH

Current

Following on from our community survey it was clear to see that the group had to pursue a path to Fauldhouse (not only for transport links, and health care but for general health and wellbeing also.  

Our paths coordinator has been working alongside West Lothian Council, Lord Provost Muldoon, and Sustrans to complete this project at a cost of £1.5 million.

As this is a large project it does take time to complete, however good progress is being made.  The project has currently been costed and planned for.  Designs for construction are now being drawn up which will be completed by October 2022.  Further designs and funding are required for the bridge section, with applications being decided in January 2023.  The Path is scheduled to commence building in early 2024.  Further updates should be available by the end of this year.
