Great news for cyclists and pedestrians in the Auchterarder area. Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust are about to start work improving the Provost’s Walk path adjacent to the A9, creating a new 2m wide surfaced path and upgrading the drainage.
The new path will run from the foot of Ruthven St, west towards the path junction near Glenburn Road and is the first phase of a wider project to upgrade all the popular paths in the Auchterarder area.
Unfortunately this means that this section of the core path will be closed for approximately 10 weeks beginning on the 25th January 2017. A diversion can be made by taking an alternative route through the neighbouring streets.
The project is being funded by a number of organisations including the Auchterarder Community Facilities Fund, Auchterarder & District Community Trust, Sustrans and Tactran.
Founded in 1997, Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust (PKCT) is an independent charity that negotiates access to land, builds shared footpaths, helps care for the countryside and undertakes conservation projects; all to improve and promote access to the countryside for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
PKCT is supported by The Gannochy Trust, Perth & Kinross Council, Scottish Natural Heritage and Forestry Commission Scotland.
