Opening up route to improve access

People using a path past Hallhill Sports Centre, Dunbar to go to school or shops by foot, bike or scooter will shortly enjoy an improved journey thanks to funding from the Scottish Government’s Spaces for People programme.

Environment spokesperson, Cllr Norman Hampshire explained: “This particular path which runs alongside Hallhill rugby pitch and running track and the all-weather pitch is narrow at both ends with an electrical distribution box and sets of gates. The Spaces for People funding will enable the distribution box to be re-sited and so provide a wider and much safer route to school for children and families. The works are scheduled to be carried out in mid December and so the improved route will be available to use at the start of the new school term in January 2021.”

The work will cost around £8k to complete.
