This projects delivery has substantially improved a section of the John Muir Way Coast to Coast long distance route, and through its delivery has completed a high quality walking and cycling route between Blackness and Bo’ness. The project has re-established a route between the two communities and through its design and delivery has developed it into an all-weather multi-use route, which now provides a safe off road route between these two destinations and will enable the re-alignment of the National Cycle Network NCN 76 route. The route now offers the easiest of gradients possible and its delivery has enabled people living in the local communities to use the route as part of their everyday travel choice. The gentle gradient has also encouraged people who are less active to try cycling or walking as the first steps towards a more active lifestyle or for those more adventurous souls to walk parts of the John Muir Way.
