Fulsie Path Phase One

Completed

Work has been completed (apart from the small strip towards the East Whitburn end, on which we will provide an update as soon as possible (Phase 2)).

This path would not have been possible without funding support from Paths for All, West Lothian Council, The Woodland Trust and the support of our amazing community.  The Woodland Trust have also completed additional works along the path including new route posts and a new bench on top of the Fulshie.  The Woodland Trust very kindly dedicated the bench to our late trustee Ian, who played a key role in securing the new pathing.​

Stoneyburn to Fauldhouse Path

Ongoing

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

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 have now been drawn up.  Further designs and funding are required for the bridge section, with applications being decided in late 2023.  The Path was scheduled to commence building in early 2024, although this is now expected to be in late 2025.  Further updates should be available by the summer.

FULSHIE PATH - PHASE 2

Ongoing

The Fulshie Path Phase One has been completed.  Currently, the Vision Group is working alongside West Lothian Council and East Whitburn Groups to secure the remaining path which would allow for the Fulshie Path to connect to the newly laid path at East Whitburn.  This strip is currently impassable and is a public right of way.  Currently, the legal team at West Lothian Council is consulting with the landowner on the project.

We will continue to update you on our progress.

 

Bowling Club Path

Ongoing

Paths for All has awarded the Group £10,000 of funding to lay a path from the Bowlers to the sewage gate opening, linking the water board bath to Cuthill Crescent.  The new path will run behind the houses at Cuthill Cresent and link up to the Fulshie path giving a completed 5K route.  Currently, we are in discussions with the landowner. ​​​

Paths for All installed a visitor counter to record path usage.  Please click the link to read more (Annual review for 2023 does not include Qtr 1 due to the time the counter was installed.)
