CONSULTATION Over Glasgow Waterfront Avenue Designs

9 May, 2024 | Active Travel, Public Realm

PROPOSALS to turn Broomielaw and Clyde Street into people-friendly Avenues go on show at a consultation event next week.

The waterfront routes are being lined up for major public realm improvements including cycleways and landscaping.

The drop-in event will take place between noon and 3pm on Wednesday 15 May at the Briggait Arts Centre, 141 Bridge Street.

Plans for both Avenues will be on display and the team working on the project will be on hand to answer any questions and receive feedback.

Anyone unable to attend but wishing to comment on the plans can do so via the online questionnaire (available beginning from 15 May until 14 June).

The Avenues programme is the biggest transformation of city centre streets in several decades, reprioritising road space to create more attractive, accessible and people-friendly spaces.

The £115million programme is being delivered through the Glasgow City Region City Deal, which is funded by the Scottish and UK Governments.

Work starts on the Argyle Street West Avenue next week.

Councillor Ruairi Kelly, convener for neighbourhood services and assets at Glasgow City Council, said: “The investment in the Avenues reflects the changes underway in the city centre, and the proposals for the Broomielaw and Clyde Street are great examples of their transformational potential.

“The consultation event at The Briggait offers an opportunity to find out more about the Avenues programme and the benefits they can bring. This is an ideal event for anyone with an interest in the future vitality, prosperity and sustainability of our city centre to contribute to that discussion.”
