£250k upgrade to NCN 77 at Almondbank and the North Inch

We are about to begin £250,000 of path upgrade works to the NCN 77 at Almondbank north of Perth and off the North Inch in the city centre. 

1.3 km of path from Lows Work Cottages to beyond the Waterside will be upgraded to improve accessibility and create a modern, multi-user path suitable for cyclists, walkers, wheelchair users and others.

Works are expected to start on 29 June and last for at least 10 weeks. The path will be closed throughout the work and a diversion will be in place.

As part of the project, over 265 m of the NCN 77 at the North Inch will also be repaired and levelled out to make the user experience more enjoyable and safer. A diversion will also be in place during these works.

These project works are being funded by Sustrans.
