Wallyford Bing Path
In recent years, Wallyford has been the site of a large amount of development. As part of this, a new primary school was constructed in 2019, and required a path past The Bing – an area of woodland immediately south-east of Wallyford Industrial Estate. This path was to be a ‘safer route to school’ for pupils travelling between the primary school and the residential areas to the west and south-west.
This report by independent transport consultancy AECOM studies the feasibility of the various options for the routes to school, and provides an appraisal of each, and gives an indication of relative costs. The report also to includes the assessment of several complementary improvements to paths to the north, east and west of The Bing, as well as looking at active travel improvements to Wallyford Toll roundabout, where a number of existing and proposed routes converge.
The location of the chosen route is indicated by the pink arrow below.

East Lothian Council and AECOM are looking to have the final design drawings for the Wallyford Bing project completed by end of October. We are then hoping to commence construction in January 2024.
The full layout is shown below or you can download a PDF of the design to see more detail.
