Falkirk Area Disability Access Panel (FADAP) has been involved in a comprehensive street audit of the route from Grahamston Station to the Retail Park. This was completed with the help of “Living Streets”. While Falkirk Council has undertaken to improve some of the smaller items which we identified, we are in the process of pushing for further improvements including a better crossing point at Meeks Road.
Stakeholders Tesco and Scot Rail have been approached and have made positive contributions. This project has taken up most of FADAP’s time. However we have carried on with the “bread and butter” business of getting some dropped kerbs established and maintaining a representation on the local taxi forum in an effort to address the problem of the falling numbers of available wheelchair accessible vehicles in the Falkirk area.
