|Pedal power for Glasgow as city council wins transport award for cycling|
|Glasgow City Council has been awarded for its achievements in cycling at this year’s Scottish Transport Awards.
Organised by Transport Times, the annual awards is now in its 15th year and recognises excellence, innovation and progress across all areas of Scotland’s transport industry.
Glasgow was shortlisted in four categories, winning Achievements in Cycling for its Strategic Plan for Cycling 2016 – 2025.
Glasgow’s award was received by Councillor Anna Richardson, City Convener for Sustainability and Carbon Reduction.
Several key cycle routes including the West City Way (safe route largely segregated from traffic from Kelvingrove Park to Central Station) and the South West City Way (2km of urban segregated cycle route linking Pollokshields to the City Centre via the Tradeston footbridge) have been introduced.
New developments already underway include the South City Way, a £6.5m segregated route from Victoria Road in the south side to Merchant City in city centre. The council project won the Scottish Government’s first ever Community Links Plus funding competition, attracting £3.25m funding.
Key outcomes to date from the implementation of Glasgow Strategic Plan for Cycling include:
