Petition: Keep National Cycle Route 75 Open During Public Events in Glasgow Green

Here’s a reminder from GoBike member, Bob Downie, about the petition he has lodged with Glasgow City Council:

Hi Folks

Next year the TRNSMT Festival will be back in Glasgow Green from the 10-12th July. We wish it every success but there is no reason that the NCR75 cycleway should be shut at the same time. If you live in Glasgow and haven’t got around to signing, then the petition closes on the 28th October. Please sign and pass the link onto your friends and family.

Lets keep NCR75 open at all times. After all, it’s the busiest and best cycleway in Glasgow.

Consultation Digest Issue 45, 15 October 2019: Commuter parking, Byres Road delay, speed cameras and a GoBike member’s petition feature in this issue.

Commuter parking continues to be of concern, not just in leafy Hillhead but in Dalmarnock. We feature a petition to keep NCN 75 through Glasgow Green open during events – it needs your signature – plus a conversation about George Square, and, in feedback, we learn how speed cameras may not be installed by local authorities alone. Do please read on.

Keep National Cycle Route 75 Open During Public Events in Glasgow Green – GoBike member’s petition

GoBike member, Bob Downie, is very concerned, as are many of us, that the main cycle route by the River Clyde through Glasgow Green is closed during events. He has had a petition approved by Glasgow City Council, which he hopes will reverse this. To quote Bob:

National Cycle Route 75 (NCR75) where it passes by Glasgow Green is both the busiest and arguably the most pleasant off-road cycle route in Glasgow. However, due to the staging of large events in The Green it can be shut for days on end with poor or negligible diversion signage causing great inconvenience to cyclists.
It doesn’t have to be this way. We can have events in the Green without closure of NCR75
If you are a Glasgow resident, please sign this petition to end closure

Let’s do all we can to keep this busy commuting (and leisure) route open.

Clyde Place Glasgow: the transformation from 3-lane road to public realm moves on but it does mean changes for the South West City Way, from MONDAY 02 SEPTEMBER.

Just in this afternoon from our contact at the Barclays site on Buchanan Wharf:

“I wanted to make you aware of some works that will commence on Monday 2nd September which will affect the cycleway on Clyde Place. As you know, Clyde Place is being Stopped Up and will be replaced by Public Realm. The permanent Stopping Up Order comes into effect on 1st October 2019. The cycleway on Clyde Place needs to be temporarily diverted onto the Riverside Public Realm area to the north in order to facilitate works on Clyde Place.

The contractor plans to implement the diversion from Monday 2nd September to allow for some advanced works to occur ahead of the Clyde Place Stopping Up Order permanently coming into effect in October.

Consultation Digest Issue 32, 16 April 2019, Glasgow’s South City Way nudges forward, Zebra Crossing survey, more on Byres Road, and read on for disappointments but also good news

We have some interesting new proposals for you this time, from parking changes to allow a new cycle lane at Speirs Wharf to pedestrian crossings to climate change. Also, fascinating feedback that demonstrates a lack of overall compliance with aspirations for active travel, with contraflow cycling denied yet again in the west of Glasgow and ongoing concern about University Avenue. Read on!
