Just in this afternoon from our contact at the Barclays site on Buchanan Wharf:
“I wanted to make you aware of some works that will commence on Monday 2nd September which will affect the cycleway on Clyde Place. As you know, Clyde Place is being Stopped Up and will be replaced by Public Realm. The permanent Stopping Up Order comes into effect on 1st October 2019. The cycleway on Clyde Place needs to be temporarily diverted onto the Riverside Public Realm area to the north in order to facilitate works on Clyde Place.
The contractor plans to implement the diversion from Monday 2nd September to allow for some advanced works to occur ahead of the Clyde Place Stopping Up Order permanently coming into effect in October.

Have you been struggling to walk or cycle along West Street or from Paisley Road West to West Street along the South West City Way? Read on to find out what’s happening:

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.

This issue contains disconcerting news about parking in 2 residential areas of Glasgow and promising news about Battlefield, City Centre avenues, City Deal works around Glasgow Airport and Pollok Park. 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.

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.
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.
Continue reading “Consultation Digest Issue 36, 12 June 2019, exciting proposals for Pollokshields, preparation for separated cycle lane on Garscube Road and less exciting matters.”
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.
Continue reading “Consultation Digest Issue 34, 17 May 2019, University Avenue petition, another contraflow refusal and much, much more in this mega issue.”
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).
