Argyle Street ‘Avenue’ consultation gets underway
June 13 2018
Attention is turning to the Argyle Street component of Glasgow’s ‘Avenues’ project this weekend with the launch of a public consultation designed to shape how the next phase of the giant public realm project will look.
Examining a stretch of public realm from Anderston Cross to Trongate, as well as St Enoch Square through to Clyde Street, the project will examine public demand for walking and cycling provision as well as identifying the need for green space and events accommodation.
Armed with this information designers will redesign the street accordingly to improve connectivity and enhance the visual appeal of the streetscapes as part of the £115m Avenues component of the Glasgow City Region City Deal.
The Argyle Street consultation forms part of 'Block A' which focusses on Argyle St East & West along with St Enoch Square; The Underline – (a pedestrian and cycle route linking Gt Western Rd with the city centre); Sauchiehall Precinct; Cathedral St and North Hanover St.
Stephen O’Malley, founding director of Civic Engineers who leads the design team for Block A said, “Getting the opinions of the public on these initial ideas and principles for Argyle Street is a fundamental part of the process.
“The information we collect in this first stage of consultation will help us to determine how to balance the space allocated to each element; walking, cycling, nature and so on, to inform the proposed final designs that will be out for formal consultation later in the year.”
