Active travel and sustainable transport
We are pleased to announce that our Travel-Light Project has been completed.
Riverside Community Council's Active Travel and Sustainable Travel group applied for, and were successful in securing funding from Path's For All Smarter Choices, Smarter Places.
At the end of July we completed and submitted our findings after achieving our objectives:
Monitor and report gaseous pollutant levels
Undertake a local survey of residents
Make Lovers' Walk safer and more attractive for Active Travel
Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions we made the decision to cancel our planned Active Travel day. In it's place we undertook a Disability Audit of some of the main streets in Riverside.
Our next step will be to use this information and develop an Active Travel Plan for Riverside, allowing us to plan our current and future projects based on what our community has told us.
This will involve forming a short term working group, consisting of members of other sub groups, including the Parking Group and the Riverside Gateway group, other interested parties, eg, Stirling Council and Riverside Primary school, and as many members of our community that would like to have a say in moving towards more Active Travel in Riverside.
We are really looking forward to this next stage and if you would like to be part of this new group, please let us know here.
Due to COVID restrictions our meetings are currently postponed.
minutes & information
Due to COVID our Active Travel Day has been postponed.
Keeping ourselves active is something that is very important to us so if you have any ideas you'd lie to share to help us encourage and support people power during this unprecedented time, please get in touch!
It is important to us to work with partners within Riverside and those who use, work and enjoy Riverside.
We've been working with Wallace High and Riverside Primary School to find out about the challenges and suggestions they may have. We also welcomed some of the primary's Road Safely Officers to our drop in to get their comments about their travel experiences in Riverside.
Enjoy some of Riverside Primary School's pupils fantastic suggestions for Lover's Walk.
