Segregated Active Travel Corridor (SATC)
East Lothian has the opportunity to provide a largely off-road route for walking, wheeling and cycling which will provide a faster and more direct connection through the county, from Dunbar through Haddington and Musselburgh and onto Edinburgh. The route, and the spurs off it, will provide a multi-user path network, connecting the principle settlements, employment areas, transport hubs and areas of future growth. This network will build upon the existing network, including the National Cycle Network NCN1, NCN196 and the North Sea Cycle Route NCN76.
The SATC will include new sections of high quality paths passing through new housing developments or alongside green corridors, and signage / junction improvements along existing quieter roads. Some junctions will be realigned to allow safer crossing at busy road sections, where necessary. The main routes will be well designed, segregated where possible, lit and well maintained.
