Signage training with local volunteers

Every year, Sustrans works with local authorities to improve the directional signage along the National Cycle Network. We have the expertise to design and deliver innovative active travel signing strategies on and off the National Cycle Network and (in collaboration with Cycling Scotland) deliver training in best practice to local authorities across Scotland. 

  • Over the past 5 years, Sustrans has installed approximately 2000 directional signs along the National Cycle Network in Scotland.
  • Sustrans delivers major way marking projects for key active travel routes in Scotland such as the John Muir Way which will run from Dunbar in East Lothian to Helensburgh in Argyll.
  • Sustrans works in partnership with Transport Scotland, Forestry Commission, Argyll and Bute Council and The Highland Council on signing of the National Cycle Network between Oban and Inverness via Fort William (part of the Caledonia Way).
  • We employ a member of staff to work with Edinburgh City Council on signing local cycling routes as part of the Edinburgh Active Travel Action Plan.
  • With the help of our volunteers, we provide guidance to local authorities and land owners on signing of active travel routes that have been temporarily diverted such as during the construction of the Borders Railway Project.
