Jul 30, 2023

Community update at Broadford Village Hall, Thursday 17 August 3 – 7.30pm

Come along to Broadford Village Hall on Thursday 17 August for an update about the active travel path between the Skye Bridge and Broadford. We will be sharing the latest designs and look forward to hearing your views.

  • From 3pm: Drop in to view the latest plans and give us your feedback
  • 6pm: Presentation by engineering consultants Sweco (approx 20 mins), followed by Q&A

The Skye Cycle Way project officer and members of the volunteer working group will also be on hand to answer questions. Refreshments will be served.

Plans and sections for the whole route will be on display. There will also be ideas about interpretation, landscaping and other placemaking elements. This will build on the Collaborative Design event held in Kyleakin in November last year. You can find a summary of that event on our website here (see under ‘Documentation’).

We will also be making the designs available to view online after the event. More details soon.

About Skye Cycle Way: The Bridge to Broadford path

The project aim is to establish a safe, traffic-free route for walkers, wheelers and cyclists between the Skye Bridge and Broadford. This main route to the island is currently served only by a very busy and dangerous trunk road. The new path will encourage greener, active travel; connect communities; and provide leisure opportunities for local residents and visitors. The community-led project is a response to a number of long-standing concerns, including safety for cyclists along the A87 and lack of opportunity for accessible active travel on Skye.

The project development phase is funded by Transport Scotland through the Sustrans Places for Everyone programme.

Find out more about the project and how to get involved on our website here. You can also follow the Skye Cycle Way Facebook page.
