Study looks for views on local transport

Residents in Airdrie and Coatbridge invited to take part

We are asking residents in Airdrie and Coatbridge for their opinions on transport, as part of a study into potential transport improvements.

With input from the local community and stakeholders, the study will help inform an Action Plan to improve walking and cycling in both towns, promote active travel, and increase the use of, and access to, public transport.

Members of the public are being invited to get involved in the consultation over the next four weeks by completing a questionnaire, available online or in local libraries.

"Transport is an important for everyone, from commuters who drive or use public transport, people using local bus services to get to the shops and residents who want to cycle or walk for work and leisure," said Councillor Michael McPake, Convener of the Infrastructure Committee.

"So, it is important that we hear from as many people as possible, to help inform the study and develop ideas for transport that meets the needs of local people.

"I would encourage people, particularly if you live or work in Airdrie and Coatbridge, to take a few minutes to complete the questionnaire and make sure your feedback is considered by the study team."

The questionnaire is also available in:

  • Airdrie Library, Wellwynd, Airdrie ML6 0AG
  • Coatbridge Library, Buchanan Centre, 126 Main Street, Coatbridge ML5 3BJ

Responses to the survey should be submitted by Sunday 17 June 2018.
