Walkers, cyclists and horse riders are among the groups to benefit from the extension of the Tweed Valley Railway multi-use path.
The £500,000 project, delivered by a funding partnership of Transport Scotland, Scottish Borders Council (SBC) and Sustrans Scotland’s Places for Everyone programme, has seen the existing Peebles to Innerleithen route extended to Walkerburn.
And an exciting new venture by Tweeddale Youth Action – supported by GO e-Bike – provides local community access to electric bikes for personal use, and electric cargo bikes for the business community.
The Tweed Valley Railway multi-use path is already hugely popular but this extension improves an already excellent facility to allow local people and visitors to get active and enjoy the area in a safe environment.
Councillor Gordon Edgar, SBC’s Executive Member for Roads and Infrastructure, and SEStran chair, added: “I am delighted the Tweed Valley Railway multi-use path is now completed, and hope it encourages more people to jump on their bike or pull on their walking shoes and get active.”
