The Anstruther to Pittenweem Multi Use Path 

Fife Council wants to know what you think about the designs for a shared multi-use path between Anstruther and Pittenweem.

This community -led initiative to encourage active travel, linking shops, schools and places of interest whilst providing a safe walking, cycling and wheeling route to Waid Academy.

There are two possible options that will connect the communities with a safe traffic-free route for all.

  • Both Routes will provide good quality and safe 3-3.5 metre wide tarmac tracks with reflectors and solar powered studs for night journeys.

  • Traffic calming along the A917 will be a component for each scheme.

  • Both routes require negotiation with private landowners to allow construction 

  • Neither route will have any street lighting.

Safety is our key aim.

A917 Route Anstruther to Pittenweem

Here is what Bill said "I'm not a serious Cyclist and I’m afraid  to use this road to cycle on, so I use the Southern pavement but that gives me and other users little room to manoeuvre and its so close to the road"

 

"I would love to have a wider path developed which was safe to use"

 

SAFETY  for all users is our key aim The path proposed will be 2 metres from the Road and 3 metres in width. Same as the successful Kilrenny Path.

 

The proposed path North of the A917 and supported by the Anstruther CC will add traffic calming measures to the entrances of both communities, including a SAFE pedestrian crossings.
