- James Bundy, Conservative candidate for Falkirk North responded: “Making it easier to get around Falkirk is at the heart of my election campaign, and we must do this in a sustainable matter. That’s why I’m in favour of creating an active travel network which connects the Kelpies, Wheel, Callander House & our High Street.”
