We now have the first traffic regulation order for the proposals put forward by Yorkhill and Kelvingrove Community Council. This is a very pro-active community council, working hard to improve the area and keep residents informed (see 1.6). This is also your last chance to comment on the notorious Byres Road proposals, so please read on.
“On Street Consultation Schedule Friday 15th June – 10am – 2pm – Argyle St at Buchanan St Friday 15th June – 2pm – 6pm – Hielanman’s Umbrella Saturday 16th June – 10am – 2pm – St Enoch Sq Saturday 16th June – 2pm – 6pm – Trongate Sunday 17th June – 10am – 2pm – Trongate For the latest updates check twitter @GlasgowCC as this schedule may be subject to change at short notice”
The article also states that “the project will examine public demand for walking and cycling provision” but as you can see from their photo, which we have reproduced above, they already show bikes pushed to the side with people walking, not a good situation. Argyle Street is a core path, so let’s make sure for all of us who cycle there that we get good cycle lanes.
Happy New Year to all of you! Feeling overindulged and in need of some air in your lungs? Well GoBike has the thing for you… Did you know that we run monthly cycle rides showing routes in and outwith the Glasgow area? Oh yes we do, and we’d love you to join us.
Our next ride is this Sunday 7th January and takes in a 15 mile safari around the inner city, with our annual review of Glasgow’s cycle infrastructure. Planned and led by Andy Preece, each monthly ride has a different destination – see our Cycle Rides section on the website for more info or check out the events pages on our Facebook.
Yes, the day has finally arrived for us to take to the streets of Glasgow and show the world exactly what our cycling infrastructure is like. Some of it will be good, some of it will be bad, and we need to see it all so we can show it to the Council and help to make ours a true Cycling City.
Keep your camera with you today and when you spot any cycling infrastructure that you want to highlight (good or bad) – or if you spot somewhere that’s crying out for infrastructure it doesn’t have yet – take a picture and Tweet it with the hashtag #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17. Don’t worry if you don’t have Twitter, you can still take part by emailing your pictures to us at CycleInfraDay@gmail.com.
You’ll be able to watch the gallery build throughout the day by keeping an eye on the hashtag on Twitter (you don’t need an account for this – just click this link), or by following the Twitter account (@CycleInfraDay).
Remember, this is supposed to be an easy way of documenting a day in the life of Glasgow’s cycling infrastructure. So please be sensible; don’t go dashing across busy roads to get an ‘action shot’, or exploring the collapsed section of the cycle lane along the Clyde to show the damage after the weir jammed last week.
