  • The Devon Way is a core path which follows the former railway line between Alloa and Dollar. It is 10k long and passes through the communities of Alloa, Sauchie, Fishcross, Marchglen, Devonside, Tillicoultry and Dollar. It&apos;s southern end links with the newly opened Alloa Railway Station and with the National Cycle Route, which also forms a part of the Round the Forth route. It also provides access to the newly opened Clackmannan Community Health Centre and to shops and other facilities in Alloa town centre and passes close to a number of primary schools and horse livery yards. Because of these links, the Devon Way has great potential for use in active travel, for use by tourists visiting the area and for recreation.
  • Take a step back and ask why complete a demonstration project?
  • The main driver for the development of a site was the production of CAPS and the introduction of a facility to share good practice in one venue due to the varying projects throughout Scotland. Cycling Scotland was also used to queries in various areas including shared use paths, junctions, access control and contra flow lanes. A number of years prior to CAPS we had looked at developing demo sites to promote good practice and the foundations were laid. What was the next step?
  • Inception Report developed prior to final version of CAPS and therefore slightly different from the ones listed above. Do not wish to go over this in great detail but I have a copy of the inception report here if you wish to look through.
  • Expanding on Action 2, cycling scotland has set in motion the ability to offer mcm at various locations: Specific to councils in their area Universities Demo Projects Could not do it ourselves
  • Meeting was held between paths for all and Cycling Scotland to discuss future development and at this time it was agreed the Devon Way and Clacks could be a partner. Sustrans have provided numerous projects and are funders.
  • What should a demo site criteria be? Accessible - Train Station – Off Road Typical Situation – Old Railway Line and Crossings and Access control issues It should reflect the vastly different environments encountered across Scotland so that access practitioners and managers Live – The path is in use today Demonstrate various good practice examples Commitment from CS, Sus, PfA and CC
  • There has been a continuous development of the path network from Alloa over the last few years. Requires to be upgraded Equestrian Use Current good practice Ownership of Council
  • Not going to go into this too much but signing is the main area being taken forward by Sustrans and Clacks One area of future work is www.cyclestreets.org Commuting into Alloa – Led Rides
  • We will go in more detail the list above during the morning.
  • Each trainer is to complete this section for the specific training activity
  • Over the years Sustrans has developed guidelines for the design and construction of off road cycle ways. These tend to be philosophical as well as specifications. The greenway guide was developed primarily to be used by partners on the connect 2 projects although it is fully relevant to any other greenway project. The guide covers technical aspects such as designing of gradients etc and also talks about wider aspects such as monitoring and land arrangements. The NCN guidelines in muchly superseded by the likes of cycling by design it was written to provide a standard for the development of the NCN and still has uses in the standards to be used for NCN routes. Making ways for the bicycle is the early Sustrans design and construction guidance and has useful information on path construction techniques.
  • Sustrans produces a range a TINs designed for internal use – however many of these are available for partners from Sustrans staff. The information sheets are availible on the Sustrans website under resources but many of these are out dated and superseded by other guidance. TINs cover a range of subjects: Speed humps for motorcycles Alternatives to statutory guidance Signing – which has lots of examples and standards Aggregates for paths Path surfaces – discussing the merits and problems of different types of materials Access controls and barriers Trees Side road crossings Zebra Crossing Toucan Crossings

    67. 71. Devon Way – Shared Use Path – Signing Box 2. A planned approach to communications An effective communications plan need not be lengthy or complex, but will outline:  principal objectives  target audiences  key messages  communications media  action programme – including tasks, priorities, responsibilities and timing  costs and funding sources  monitoring and evaluation procedures
    68. 73. Devon Way – Shared Use Path – CDM Health and Safety Executive – Construction Design and Management (CDM) Regulations 2007 Do you think it applies? How can we use this within the path construction process?
    69. 74. Devon Way – Shared Use Path – CDM If a project involves more than 30 days work and/or 500 person days, the project is notifiable and CDM 2007 applies in full. Notify via F10 form If the project lasts less than 30 working days and less than 500 person days it is not notifiable. The Regulations apply but in a limited form.
    70. 75. Devon Way – Shared Use Path – CDM The Client The Client is the person or organisation that is promoting and instigating the project and usually the one paying for it. The Designer The Designer is the person or company that specifies the works for a project. The CDM Coordinator (formerly Planning Supervisor) The CDM Co-ordinator is the key health and safety role for a notifiable project. The Principal Contractor The Principal Contractor is the main contractor working on the project. For the majority of path projects this will be one firm who may or may not employ one or more sub-contractors.
