In September 2014, AECOM was commissioned by Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) and East Dunbartonshire Council (EDC) to carry out a STAG part 2 Transport Appraisal of sustainable transport options within the Kirkintilloch/Lenzie – Bishopbriggs – Glasgow corridor.
The purpose of this study is to rigorously appraise a range of options that aim to improve overall transport conditions along the A803 corridor and support sustainable transport options in line with EDC’s Local Transport Strategy 2013-2017.
This report follows on from the pre-appraisal STAG study undertaken by East Dunbartonshire Council in 2013 and the Part 1 appraisal carried out by AECOM in 2014. The study sifted out options and appraised those which performed well in the STAG Part 1 (Initial Appraisal). The options appraised in the more rigorous and quantitative evidence based STAG Part 2 (Detailed Appraisal) can demonstrate positive impacts but in many cases are also accompanied by risks and deliverability issues.
This study is an evidence report delivered by independent transport consultants. It is envisaged that the report will be used to inform development of future transport projects across East Dunbartonshire and will support delivery of the Council’s Local Transport Strategy (LTS) 2013-2017 and Emerging Local Development Plan.
