Queens Park area: GoBike objection to GCC proposal to make footways next to the park dual use


Glasgow City Council is consulting, until tomorrow (06 April) on a proposal to redetermine the footways on Pollokshaws Road and Langside Avenue adjacent to Queens Park as available for cyclists as well as pedestrians.  Although these footways are quite wide and relatively little-used, we have objected to this proposal since Pollokshaws Road is a major commuter route and requires proper cycle lanes and cyclists who don’t want to use the road would go via Queens Park itself rather than on the adjacent footway.  The Council’s proposals may be seen here and our letter of objection is on our Consultations page: https://www.gobike.org/campaignsconsultations/consultations
