Consultation Digest Issue 40, 06 August 2019

This Digest contains only one new consultation but it’s a big one, from Transport Scotland and there is a surprising amount of feedback, finishing with the excellent news that Yorkhill and Kelvingrove Community Council have been successful in gaining funding for their cycling village. The picture heading this Digest shows the proposed new bridge over the Clyde, see Item 3.11.

Consultation Digest Issue 38, 10 July 2019: the South City Way approaches the City Centre

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.

Consultation Digest 37, 25 June 2019: When is a bus/taxi/cycle gate not a bus/taxi/cycle gate and other matters to ponder.

Ever so slightly staggering news in this issue of a bus/taxi/cycle gate installed in the Athletes’ Village in Glasgow in 2014 in the hope a bus service would be introduced. Surprisingly, since the City Council does not control the buses and they never applied for a Traffic Regulation Order (so it’s never been legal!) it’s to be removed – just as a new primary school is about to be opened right next to it! (See Item 3.1)
Exciting proposals from Edinburgh and yet more patchwork 20mph schemes and speed cushions elsewhere – do read on.

Consultation Digest Issue 36, 12 June 2019, exciting proposals for Pollokshields, preparation for separated cycle lane on Garscube Road and less exciting matters.

This is a Glasgow issue, with on-line consultation for Battlefield open, grassroots proposals for Pollokshields, Woodside extension to Garscube Road and yet more speed humps – this time in Dalmarnock – but do please read on for even more.

Consultation Digest Issue 34, 17 May 2019, University Avenue petition, another contraflow refusal and much, much more in this mega issue.

Apologies for the late issue of this Digest, but family and other commitments plus lots of information coming in for you, and a shy and retiring co-Convenor (she put out a super message yesterday) have delayed things. We have some news of University Avenue, good news about the closure of streets around a few schools in Glasgow, parking restrictions in Bearsden and at work, and yet another refusal of contraflow cycling.

Consultation Digest Issue 33. 30 April 2019, success and disappointment in Glasgow and some big issue surveys for you to complete.

In this issue we have good news on Byres Road, bad news on Elmbank Street (again) but please rush to complete North Toryglen survey TODAY, followed by a more relaxed rush for the Infrastructure Call for Evidence (Item 1.2) and then tell Glasgow City Council what should be done to combat climate change (Item 1.6).

Consultation Digest Issue 32, 16 April 2019, Glasgow’s South City Way nudges forward, Zebra Crossing survey, more on Byres Road, and read on for disappointments but also good news

We have some interesting new proposals for you this time, from parking changes to allow a new cycle lane at Speirs Wharf to pedestrian crossings to climate change. Also, fascinating feedback that demonstrates a lack of overall compliance with aspirations for active travel, with contraflow cycling denied yet again in the west of Glasgow and ongoing concern about University Avenue. Read on!
