Glasgow streetscape improvement plan wins £3.25m funding
August 12 2016
The South City Way is the product of a design competition eliciting ideas for prioritising pedestrians and cyclists and will stretch from Victoria Road in the South Side all the way to Stockwell Street in the Merchant City.
This will entail creation of 3km of segregated cycle paths as well as associated public realm improvements on affected roads.
Humza Yousaf, minister for transport and the islands, said: “Glasgow City Council has shown real ambition and vision towards improving conditions for people who choose to walk or cycle along a major commuter belt, while also connecting a densely populated area with the city centre.“
Work on the project, drawn up by the sustainable transport project team within Land and Environmental Services at Glasgow City Council, will commence shortly for delivery by summer 2018.
