Make your move Kirkcaldy
Make your move Kirkcaldy is a partnership project between Fife Council and Sustrans (with funding from the Scottish Government).
The aim of the project is to increase the share of journeys in Kirkcaldy made by cycling, public transport and walking. The Scottish Government has set a target that 10% of all journeys in Scotland should be made by bike by 2020.
To achieve this we have been improving the walking and cycling routes in town, advertising the benefits of choosing public transport, walking and cycling, and promoting information such as maps, training opportunities and guidance tips. We’ll also be running lots of exciting events in town where we would love to hear your thoughts on the project.
As part of this project Sustrans and Fife Council are also working on local street design projects in Kirkcaldy where local residents are involved in the redesign of their street. The aim is to improve it as a place to live as well as making it a more attractive area for cycling and walking.
Make your move Kirkcaldy supports the objectives of Fife Council's Local Transport Strategy to give priority to walking and cycling for short trips and as a feeder to public transport, and supports the majority of the Big 8 priorities in the Council Plan.
Fife Council’s Big 8 priorities include becoming the leading green council in Scotland, improving local conditions for economic development and improving sport, leisure and cultural opportunities.
Fife Council was awarded the Local Transport Authority of the Year at the Scottish Transport Awards in 2010 and 2011. The Scottish Transport Awards recognise and reward real improvements to transport across Scotland.
Sustrans is the charity that is enabling people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make every day. It’s time we all began making smarter travel choices. Make your move and support Sustrans today.
Sustrans is calling on UK governments to invest in doubling the number of journeys under five miles made by foot, bike and public transport to four out of five by 2020.
