Contraflow cycling to be prevented by HGVs?

Cardonald Place Road contraflow

This photo shows the recently completed contraflow cycle lane in Cardonald Place Road, leading up to Paisley Road West in Glasgow, but we have written back to Glasgow City Council to counter their view that contraflow cycling can not be allowed in Forth Street, Pollokshields because of the HGVs that go to the business premises there.  With a mixture of premises in the street, domestic, commercial, religious and a community cycle organisation, it is counter-productive for people on bikes to be restricted to a one-way arrangement.  You may see our letter confirming our objection to the one-way system for cyclists here on our Consultations page:

Please support our objection to this proposal if you value the accessiblity that contraflow cycling could bring.
