Better than Going to the Gym, Upper Tweed Railway Paths

That the Parliament congratulates Upper Tweed Railway Paths, a community organisation, on its efforts to construct a multi-user path suitable for cycling, horse-riding and walking, with disabled access, along the former railway line from Peebles, by way of Stobo, Broughton, Tweedsmuir and Biggar to Symington; notes that it has lodged applications for funding with the Big Lottery, among others, to fund a feasibility study, and considers that reopening the old line as a pathway will bring not only economic benefits along its route, but promote healthy activity in an environment that is safe and free to access.
