Consultation Digest Issue 19, 09 October 2018: Byres Road rethink, beyond Parkhead on the East City Way, and much more.

Many thanks to Iona for keeping you up-to-date so well while I was off on a big tour of Kenya – four weeks without getting on a bike – and what news there was. A massive rethink on Byres Road! Didn’t we all do well! That’s the power of lots of us letting people know our views, so please keep writing and answering those surveys. Let’s hope Byres Road does become as peaceful as this earlier publicity picture suggests, but with those all important segregated cycle lanes.

GoBike Supports a Car Free George Square

Glasgow City Council are taking the bold move to capitalise on recent road closures around George Square during the Glasgow 2018 events and are looking to potentially remove traffic permanently. GoBike are fully in support of this idea and would love to see George Square made a much friendlier, safer, quieter and less polluted place for people.

They have a survey here looking to gather opinions on this plan, and your input would be really appreciated – it only takes two minutes. Thanks for your assistance!
