Walking and cycling
Planned works on Cycle Routes around Ayr
Ayrshire Roads Alliance (ARA) has now completed the construction of the bi-directional cycle lane on the north side of Holmston
Road, from the entrance in to the park to the existing controlled crossing at the junction of Overmills Road.
On Monday 5th September, contractors working on behalf of ARA started work on NCR7, at Wracks Bridge Troon; the exact extent
and duration of this work is yet to be confirmed. However, access will be maintained at all times.

Walking and cycling along the paths, over the hillsides, and through the villages
of Ayrshire is the only way to experience the real Ayrshire. A number of safe and
convenient footpaths and cycleways are available in South Ayrshire.

Due to a recent landslip, a section of the Church Walk, in Straiton, has had to be closed temporarily, pending the repair of the route. As the stretch of path is potentially dangerous, access takers should not attempt to use it under any circumstances, until further notice, in the interests of personal safety.
