Woodside active travel network takes shape
March 3 2020
Glasgow City Council has commenced work on an £8m active travel project to reimagine pedestrian and cycle movements around the city’s north west.
Connecting Charing Cross through Garscube, Woodlands and St George’s Road the public realm project will plug into previous improvements made to Sauchiehall Street and Port Dundas by deprioritizing vehicle movements through redesigned crossings and introduction of infrastructure such as electric car charging points and bike hire stations.
Delivered through Sustrans the first phase of this plan will see a segregated 1km cycle lane routed along Garscube Road as early as this autumn to encourage greater uptake of cycling by ensuring it is a viable method of transport.
Incorporating raised junctions, controlled crossings and a bus-stop bypass the route will eliminate conflict between cyclists and other travellers by providing an alternative to a congested tow path along the Forth & Clyde Canal.
The wider project is due for completion in 2021 and includes improved paving such as a proposed boulevard along North Woodside Road.
