A portion of proposed SPT Active Travel network map

Getting away…

It’s holiday time with summer sports to tide us over until… more summer sports. As the rosettes (and some of their owners) are put back in their box, the pre-election restrictions end. SPT take the chance to launch a major active travel consultation (like RATS up a drainpipe?). There’s a survey about Places in West Dunbartonshire and South Lanarkshire’s Development Plan. Also, city road safety campaigns and Glasgow Uni’s campus update.

Looking out…

While Scotland’s outlook at Euro 2024 may be nervy…

Glasgow City Council want us to look out for others on the roads (and not park in bus stops). Renfrewshire and South Lanarkshire are looking ahead to new strategies/plans. There are also new plans for the former abbatoir in the East End. The ongoing pre-election/‘purdah’ period is due to end at the time of the next issue…

Water Vole Trail zigzags at Gartloch Rd, Ruchazie – looking east towards the Garthamlock and Craigend water towers

Life on the edge…

The latest Liveable Neighbourhood consultation features some less well known areas at the edge of the city. They have some surprises, as a recent GoBike ride found in Ruchazie (pictured) with its rare water vole habitat. LN consultation events for Lambhill to Milton take place TODAY and tomorrow.

Nearby, the Flourishing Molendinar project is back with detailed plans, including for junction 12 of the M8. Over the boundary in North Lanarkshire there are new plans for an Urban Cycling Park. East Dunbartonshire has an update on development at the edge of Bishopbriggs. Elsewhere, there’s parking in Prestwick and East Renfrewshire has its eight town centre surveys.

GoBike ride: heading west on 05 May, Renfrewshire and the Erskine Bridge

This ride will see us heading out to Renfrewshire via Govan and Hillington. We will see progress on the Paisley-Renfrew path, and use the new cycle facilities in the Glasgow Airport and Inchinnan areas, then take a tour around the Dargavel area. After that, we will head for the Erskine Bridge and cross to the north side of the River Clyde. Return to Glasgow will be via Clydebank where we may stop for lunch.
30 miles, with one short section on a main road.

We will meet at 10am at the north end of Bell’s Bridge at the SEC, Congress Road, Glasgow.

All around…

East Renfrewshire has the most consultations this time with its eight town centre surveys. East Dunbartonshire has a pair either side of Bishopbriggs, to the north and south (A803 Stage 2 closing soon). The latter affects North Glasgow as does Flourishing Molendinar. Also, there’s parking on an NCN in South Ayrshire, North Lanarkshire features a few times and its a last call for town centre regeneration in South Lanarkshire.

Glasgow has a few new traffic orders but the focus today will be the pair of West End consultations for Yorkhill/Kelvingrove and Anderston.
Drop-in event: TODAY Thursday 18 April 2024 at 3.30–7pm in The Pyramid at Anderston, 759 Argyle Street, Glasgow G3 8DS.

In the centre…

Town centres dominate this issue – one in South Lanarkshire (visualisation in featured image, above) and no less than eight in East Renfrewshire! Elsewhere, North Lanarkshire’s consultations continue and South Ayrshire looks at car parking. Glasgow has a few projects in both the West End and in the north of the city – one of the latter links with East Dunbartonshire.
