Work has begun (15 January) on the next phase of the Bridge of Earn to Newburgh active travel project. The project led by PKCT in partnership with Transport Planning and Engineering will see a high-quality mixed-use cycle and footpath built between the two villages to encourage and enable the local community to travel under their own steam.  

The latest phase of work stretches from the Community Woodland on the eastern edge of Bridge of Earn to  just West of the new Oudenarde roundabout, and will see the existing footway on the north side of the A912 upgraded to accommodate greater cycling, wheeling and pedestrian traffic..

The works on this phase of the project, which includes crossings for the 4 slip roads on the M90 (Junction 9) are due to be completed by 15 March. While drivers and path users will be asked to take extra caution in the area until this time, road closures are minimal with two overnight slip road closures estimated later in the works.

The upgrade to this section of the footway on the A912 forms part of the long term project to connect Bridge of Earn to Abernethy, and eventually to Newburgh in Fife. A community drop-in event is planned for 22 February, where members of the project team will be on hand on answer questions and explain the project in further detail to any members of the public who attend.

Details of this community event will be announced in the near future and will be publicised on our website and social media channels.
