Wadingburn Road, Lasswade improvement

This proposal was not approved for funding.

This project aims to improve the connection between Loanhead Path and Wadingburn Road via Hunter Avenue and along Wadingburn. 

Currently there is an unsurfaced footpath along Wadingburn, and a surfaced pedestrian only path up to Hunter Avenue. There are no cycle lanes. Cycle lanes would improve connectivity between Loanhead and Lasswade, and would help travellers walking or cycling along Wadingburn Road.

We propose to paint 1.5 metre wide cycle lanes and keep a 40mph speed limit on this 1.3 km long section. Road markings and signs (Cycle lanes and logos, 40 mph roundels) will be used. The project will benefit cyclists from Lasswade. 

This project will cost £1,342.
