This morning at the Cycling Scotland Conference, Transport Minister Derek Mackay announced the launch of the Community Links PLUS design competition.
We are delighted to provide you with further details on this collaborative design competition for local authorities and other statutory bodies to conceptualise, design and deliver exemplar, high profile and inspirational cycling projects in Scotland. This competition will focus on proposals that help to restore balance in our streets in favour of pedestrians and people on bicycles through road space reallocation, removal of parking, segregated and/or protected cycle lanes and other interventions.
Access supporting documents here: https://sustranscommunitylinks.wordpress.com/community-links-plus/ These documents provide information on the Community Links PLUS process and a short form for you to complete to submit your expression of interest by 30 November 2015.
Transport Scotland and Sustrans encourage applications that reflect community demand for active travel projects across all sectors of society including health, housing, transport, environment, communities, education, regeneration and economic development.
