You may remember that last year people from GoBike met council staff and one of the Govan Councillors, Fariha Thomas, to look at the access, or lack of it, to the new hospital site, now that so many people are commuting there by bike. We have not heard of anything happening to resolve the atrocious exit from the southbound Clyde Tunnel but next month work is to be done to install signals at the Moss Road / Peninver Drive Junction (just behind the yellow signage for a well-known supermarket) to ease access to the northbound tunnel. The full text of the e-mail sent to Councillors (and forwarded to GoBike by Councillor Thomas) is repeated below:

MESSAGE SENT ON BEHALF OF ANDY WADDELL
HEAD OF INFRASTRUCTURE SERVICES, LAND AND ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES
I am writing to advise you of the impending start of works in your Ward as a part of the above scheme. As part of the project, the signalising on Moss Road/Peninver Drive will take place to assist pedestrians and cyclists entering and exiting the new entrance of the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. During these works, carriageway and footway resurfacing will also be undertaken.
A contract has been awarded to MacLay Civil Engineering Contractors to carry out the works on site. It is anticipated that work will start in this area during the week commencing 16th May 2016 with completion in approximately 3 weeks.
