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.

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.

At the root…

As Spring approaches, there’s new life in grassroots Glasgow projects in the Southside, North East and some related projects in the West End. There’s also city centre and Nextbike news. East Renfrewshire are going big with five projects at once. North Lanarkshire have neighbourhood conservation areas and a few traffic orders.

East Dunbartonshire look at the A803 corridor with drop-in event TODAY in Bishopbriggs. However, there’s tragic news elsewhere in the area as a collision killed a 56-year old woman cycling on Manse Road, Bearsden. It involved an HGV driver, as many other fatal crashes have done in the past few months and previous years. GoBike would like to offer condolences to the woman’s family and friends.
