Further consultations: Please support Contra-flow cycling on One-Way Streets!


We have recently responded to several consultations from national and local government.  There was a further 4 20mph zones consultation for Glasgow, a redetermination of the footway alongside the A9/M9 at Gleneagles Station to Auchterader and an important one as far as the ability to cycle through the city is concerned, changes in parking in Pollokshields East with the critical change of Forth Street from two-way to one-way with no exemption for cycling.

Pollokshields Community Council are keen to have parking managed, see their Facebook page but we are concerned about Glasgow City Council’s failure to comply with their own Strategic Plan for Cycling and their design guide “Cycling by Design”, which states at Section 5 that the default for one-way streets should always be to allow two-way cycling on one-way streets.  Details of this and the other two consultation responses are on our Consultations page and there are links to both Glasgow’s Strategic Plan for Cycling and Cycling by Design on our Design Guides page.  Glasgow could be transformed for cycling if the city were seriously committed to this mode of transport and determined to retrospectively make our one-way streets two-way for cycling.  Please write in to land@glasgow.gov.uk to voice your support to maintain two-way cycling on Forth Street.
