Mauricewood Road, Penicuik improvement

This proposal was not approved for funding.

The project aims to improve the cycling connection in Penicuik through Mauricewood Road. Mauricewood Road is being used much more by cyclists and walkers, partly thanks to the new walkway, but there is no provision for cyclists on the road. We propose creating a cycleway to support the communities in Penicuik.

We are planning to create cycle lanes on this road to support safe, enjoyable and socially distant cycling for our residents. Our temporary solution would be to paint 1.5 metre cycle lanes on this 1.5 km long section. Road markings and cycle logos will be used.

We aim to create a cycling link at Mauricewood Road in order to provide safer routes for essential workers. This project will benefit commuters and leisure cyclists from Penicuik.

This project will cost £1,485.
