We have secured funding from the Spaces for People programme to design and implement changes on Western Road and Grassyards Road to enhance the existing advisory cycle lanes. These lanes are quite narrow and can be disrupted by parked vehicles.
The plans and photographs below show the extents of the areas we are considering and the current layout on Western Road and Grassyards Road . A PDF of the plans can be found in the "Additional materials" section at the bottom of this page.
We also have funding to design and implement changes on Garden Street and Hill Street to reallocate road space to give greater priority to cyclists. These roads link Ayrshire College (Kilmarnock) to the railway station, the town centre and onward to the National Cycle Network route (NCN 73) but the existing road environment does not support easy cycling.
The plan and photograph below shows the extent of the area we are considering and the current situation. A PDF of the plans can be found in the "Additional materials" section at the bottom of this page.
As soon as we have designs showing our proposals we will upload them here to keep you updated. Once these temporary measures are implemented it will be possible to comment on them on the Sustrans Space to Move website . The feedback provided after implementation will help us to decide if there is value in making the measures permanent, if they should be removed early, or if modifications are needed.
