Petition: Keep National Cycle Route 75 Open During Public Events in Glasgow Green

Here’s a reminder from GoBike member, Bob Downie, about the petition he has lodged with Glasgow City Council:

Hi Folks

Next year the TRNSMT Festival will be back in Glasgow Green from the 10-12th July. We wish it every success but there is no reason that the NCR75 cycleway should be shut at the same time. If you live in Glasgow and haven’t got around to signing, then the petition closes on the 28th October. Please sign and pass the link onto your friends and family.

Lets keep NCR75 open at all times. After all, it’s the busiest and best cycleway in Glasgow.

Keep National Cycle Route 75 Open During Public Events in Glasgow Green – GoBike member’s petition

GoBike member, Bob Downie, is very concerned, as are many of us, that the main cycle route by the River Clyde through Glasgow Green is closed during events. He has had a petition approved by Glasgow City Council, which he hopes will reverse this. To quote Bob:

National Cycle Route 75 (NCR75) where it passes by Glasgow Green is both the busiest and arguably the most pleasant off-road cycle route in Glasgow. However, due to the staging of large events in The Green it can be shut for days on end with poor or negligible diversion signage causing great inconvenience to cyclists.
It doesn’t have to be this way. We can have events in the Green without closure of NCR75
If you are a Glasgow resident, please sign this petition to end closure
.”

Here’s the link to the petition: https://www.glasgowconsult.co.uk/KMS/dmart.aspx?strTab=PublicPetitions&noip=1&PageType=item&DMartId=58


Let’s do all we can to keep this busy commuting (and leisure) route open.
