We need a cycling masterplan for Stirling to tie together all the loose ends and we need more focus on paths and pavements to encourage walking.”
- Thomas Heald, the Conservative candidate for Forth and Endrick responded: “Happy to also support the @walkwheelcycle pledges. In a rural ward like Forth and Endrick there are a lot of loose ends and I fully support large scale projects like the Kings Highway project to link up the villages and Stirling.”
