As the Euros continue there’s a rare call-up for SPT to the Digest.
Glasgow’s Spaces for People consultation has ended but East Ren’s marches on. Near their border there’s a new 20mph zone. A new road and active travel networks in Lanarkshire, ‘Discussion’ continues in East Dunbartonshire and more post-match analysis from Dennistoun.

This is, primarily, the feedback issue, with 16 updates on items that have been covered before. These include 10 consultation submissions: 4 for Traffic Calming (speed cushions proposed for all), 3 for Byres Road, 1 for proposed one-way with no contraflow (but see our final item for what we hope is a change for the better) 1 for Car Club Electric Vehicle Charging Points (the location of which cause some concern, but we include a different approach from North Lanarkshire) and 1 high-level District Regeneration Framework – thanks to all the people who contributed to the letters submitted, but do please read on for the detail and stushies at 2 big football clubs.

Glasgow City Council maintain their policy of “Streets for Cars” by installing speed cushions to deter high motor speeds rather than installing cycle lanes or doing other public realm works, and we also look at completed works in the east of Glasgow that we previously commented on.

Quite a bumper bundle for you today, but 2 of our significant concerns have raised their heads again. Firstly, side roads on cycle lanes – we need cycle lanes to continue across side roads, just as in the feature photo with this Digest. If a child in the Netherlands is able to cycle safely across a side road, a child in Glasgow should be able to too. Secondly, contraflow cycling – when cars are going too fast or more on-road parking is needed the first line of response is to make a street one-way, even for bikes. What have we done wrong? Why should we have to make big detours? Do read on for the details of all the current issues.

We object to the permanent introduction of taxis to all 4 lanes of the Finnieston/Squinty/Clyde Arc Bridge – where is the active travel space? – and we learn that traffic calming schemes are a one-stage consultation with no Traffic Regulation Order. Plus, as desks are cleared for the holidays – a break for some – we have a stack of feedback for you.

Good news in this issue with the roll-out of 20mph in Glasgow, the National Cycle Route in Glasgow Green and the South West City Way, see Section 3, and we look forward to cycle lanes to Glasgow’s newest railway station at Robroyston, but do read on for lots, lots more with mention of South and North Lanarkshire, East Dunbartonshire and East Renfrewshire as well as the big city.

Yes, we had been told to expect the public consultation to restart in November so we busy volunteers were a little surprised when these 3 emails dropped into our inbox on 28 October! Read on for the full details.

There’s news from Dundee, East Dunbartonshire, North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire as well as items from Glasgow, including a Glasgow University public meeting, covering University Avenue and a failure to acknowledge a dimension error, if you get to the very last item, in this wide-ranging mix of cycling interest. Do read on.

This issue, a day late – sorry – contains news of proposed building works at Glasgow University that conveniently ignore the lack of cycling access, the South City Way advances to King Street, lots of forthcoming consultations and, in feedback, we hear that more parking attendants are to be employed in Glasgow – let’s hope they can get parking controlled, but do read on for more. There’s a surprising amount of news given that we are now into summer holidays.
