Scotland low carbon projects get £3.25M

Five projects across Scotland supporting low carbon modes of transport have been successful in bidding for finance from the European Regional Development Fund (EDRF).

The projects include an “active travel hub” in Falkirk town centre and “a low carbon vehicle hub” at Falkirk Community Stadium, which will include 20 electric vehicle charging bays, a a 168-bay solar array, and potentially hydrogen refueling stations. The active travel hub will provide public access to bikes, maintenance and education.

Other recipients include Perth and Kinross Council, while more hubs are planned for Aberdeen, North Ayrshire and Dundee.

“The new hubs will contribute towards bringing us closer to these goals by enabling walking and cycling to be the norm for everyday journeys,” said Scotland’s Minister for Transport and the Islands Humza Yousaf.

The funding arrives from the ERDF Low Carbon Travel and Transport Challenge Fund, which was open to public and community sector organisations.
