Shown below are the upcoming consultations of which we are aware. We will be responding to those that it’s appropriate for a group such as GoBike to respond to and encouraging all our members and supporters to respond, as individuals both to these and all the others where an individual response is more appropriate.
Closing in January 2018:
Due back 19 January, Bredisholm Road, Traffic Calming. Bredisholm Road and Church Street are in Ward 20, Baillieston and here’s the content of Glasgow City Council’s e-mail, sent to us on 19 December 2017:
“THE GLASGOW CITY COUNCIL (BREDISHOLM ROAD) TRAFFIC CALMING SCHEME 2017
The Council propose to consider the introduction of the above named Traffic Calming Scheme and I wish to establish the views of your organisation.
Background to the proposed Scheme
The scheme is aimed at improving road safety by reducing vehicle speeds.
Roads affected by the proposed Scheme
The list of roads affected by these proposals are:-
BREDISHOLM ROAD, CHURCH STREET
Details of the proposed Scheme
The proposed Scheme (as depicted on the attached plan) Bredisholm Road Traffic Calming will comprise of:-
- 5 sets of 1.9m x 1.9m, 75mm high speed cushions
- 1 set of 1.7m x 1.9m, 75mm high speed cushions
Please provide any comments you wish to make on these proposals within 28 days (reply by 19/01/17).”
Here’s the response we have sent in, 18 January; it’s not an objection, but we are disappointed that yet more speed cushions are to be installed because we are not yet going for a citywide default 20mph speed limit: GoBike Bredisholm Road comments letter 180118

These are all for individual response – so please get typing!
