Glasgow City Council have issued a consultation proposal to redetermine the west footway on Montrose Street, just the section at the back of the City Chambers, outside the Ceremony Rooms, to dual use for both pedestrians and cycles. This is despite the proposal not complying with the design guide we think the council uses and despite it being in contradiction of the City Centre Transport Strategy! GoBike has submitted an objection, which you may read here
Compliance with the Strategy and the design guide “Cycling by Design” would involve removing private car parking from one side of the street, installing a cycle way – and, of course, linking this short stretch of cycle way to a cycle route. No reason has been given for mixing cycles and pedestrians on this short stretch of street.
