Glasgow City Council are currently consulting on a Traffic Regulation Order to introduce a mandatory 20mph speed limit in a significant number of streets in Partick, see https://www.glasgow.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=18127 This follows earlier proposals to “manage” parking, which introduced some new one-way streets. Unfortunately parking is still being allowed to a significant extent on many streets, to such an extent in fact that the Council refuse to allow contraflow cycling on these streets. This is despite contraflow cycling on one-way streets being the default position in the design guide the Council uses, Cycling by Design! Further details on our Consultations page and our Design Guides page. Our letter of support for the 20mph proposal includes our concerns: GoBike Partick 20mph support with concern 100717
We have also responded to on-line consultations for Glasgow City Council’s proposed Mini-Holland scheme (details were on view on 23 June), the Green Party’s ambitious proposals to update their active travel policy and the future of the Walk, Cycle, Vote campaign. We have supported a minor proposal from Glasgow City Council to control parking on Havannah Street/Duke Street. See our Consultations page for details.
