As part of the feasibility study for this route, existing core paths between the two villages were considered, particularly LUNC/133 and STAN/117. However, building this type of route involving a fenced 3-metre-wide sealed surface path with verges would be challenging along the majority of the core path alignments, and the south end of STAN//117 is at a dangerous corner with minimal opportunity to provide a safe link into Luncarty as all abilities path specification requires.
