Aberdeenshire Council has secured £185,00 for their travel project which aims to make everyday journeys attainable by foot or bike.

Fraserburgh is one of five towns featured in the Integrated Travel Town (ITT) project which plans on improving walking, cycling and public transportation capabilities in the area.

The £185,000 grant comes as £135,000 in funding from Transport Scotland’s 2106/17 Community Links programme and £50,000 from the Cycling Development Fund.

The funding will be matched by an additional £135,000 from Council budgets and £50,000 from Nestrans.

Stephen Archer, Director of Infrastructure Services, said: “News of the award couldn’t have come at a better time with consultation on the ITT Draft Masterplan proposals currently ongoing.”
