Finnieston Street, east footway

Last Saturday, Keith Bruce writing in the Herald Arts supplement about the success of the Hydro and other venues at the SECC in Glasgow, bemoaned the fact that the city has done nothing “about the pedestrian assault course it currently is to get from the Argyle Street hostelries to the arena”.  This reminded me of the works now under way by Glasgow City Council, to which Go Bike has objected, to “provide cycle routes in the area”, including the redetermination of the footway on the east side of Finnieston Street, shown above, to be 2-way for both cyclists and pedestrians.  My letter on the topic is in today’s Herald.  If you are a Herald reader, or just concerned about facilities for cyclists and pedestrians, please be ready to write in when the motorist response, as it surely will, gets published!
