Glasgow paves the way for Sauchiehall Street entertainment district
December 4 2017
Sauchiehall Street Avenue will see a ‘multifunctional service verge and two-lane cyclepath laid on the northern edge of the street with pavements widened on both sides to facilitate licensed tables for dining and drinking in an effort to further establish the area as an entertainment district.
This work will be complemented by the planting of 28 trees together with the installation of new street furniture such as bus shelters, cycle stands, seating and lighting which will also extend south along Elmbank, Holland, Pitt and Douglas Street’s.
Stuart Patrick, chief executive of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, commented: “The section of Sauchiehall Street which is the focus of the investment programme is one of the main destinations in Glasgow’s night-time economy, and with the right level of care it will be a genuinely distinctive asset to the city. It has its challenges - pavements are ragged, waste bins proliferate, there’s too much street clutter and it has to cope with being a primay gateway for traffic into the city centre.”
Work is expected to complete on the project by summer 2019.
