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).

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.

Consultation Digest Issue 29, 05 March 2019: The Good the Bad and the Ugly news from all around.

A variety of news again, glimmers of hope with reducing motor traffic in Glasgow city centre, the regeneration of the Broomielaw, and the next phase of the Battlefield consultation, but concern about delays with Byres Road and the disappearance, hopefully temporarily, of the Renfrew to Shieldhall cycle lanes consultation. This, and lots more, below.

People of All Ages Formed a Human Bike Lane Today for Safer Cycling on University Avenue

Residents, university staff and students, commuters, cycle campaigners, and adults and children who want to use bikes for travel, joined arms on University Avenue today, to tell Glasgow University and Glasgow City Council that they want segregated cycling to be installed on University Avenue. The £1b campus development has plans approved by the council that show that cycling provision on the road will be reduced to narrow strips of paint on only one side of the road, that disappear at the top of the hill, with no physical protection for people choosing to cycle on it.
