Speyside Low Carbon Hub
The ‘Speyside Low Carbon hub’ project was awarded funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) Low Carbon Travel and Transport Challenge Fund, and Transport Scotland.
The hub and path project is sited in the heart of Scotland's Speyside area. The project aims to make a step change in the use of low carbon transport modes in a number of different ways. The project includes a 10km Upgrade of the Speyside Way long distance path from Craigellachie to Carron, with Aberlour as the focal point. This will make the path fit for purpose for cycling, and provide a safe direct route linking communities away from the busy A95 trunk road. This provides an active travel route to Aberlour, a significant employment centre for Moray.
At Aberlour it includes the installation of charging points for ultra low emission vehicles, incorporating 2 rapid chargers, one of which will be dedicated for charging public transport buses. A fast charger is also included for the dedicated use of the car club to support the introduction of a car & e-bike club for the Speyside area.
The hub includes open cycle storage and bike repair stations at key nodal points on the Speyside Way. These will be close to vehicle parking locations to encourage park and ride for those not confident to undertake longer journeys by bicycle.”
