Public quizzed on first Cowcaddens Avenue concepts
November 13 2018
Glasgow City Council has launched a further set of consultations designed to gauge public opinion on its £115m Avenues programme following publication of initial designs for the next stage of its city centre public realm strategy.
A hat trick of proposals will be up for discussion spanning the Sauchiehall Precinct, the Underline at Phoenix Road and Cambridge Street to the north of the city centre, with the aim of giving greater priority to cyclists and pedestrians, improving connectivity and introducing green infrastructure.
Stephen O’Malley, founding director of Civic Engineers, commented: “The initial design concepts we are sharing for this round of consultation focus heavily on strengthening the existing connections between the city centre and the West End.
“With Sauchiehall Street we are looking to build on the existing pedestrianisation and make it a more attractive place to be with more seating, green elements and introducing some informal play for children.”
Earlier consultations have already solicited opinions for an overhaul of Argyle Street with work already well underway at Sauchiehall Street, the first of 16 Avenues to be delivered across the city.
On street consultations will take place on the 16 and 17 November as well as online via the official Avenues website.
