WORK To Improve Further City Centre Bike Lane Announced

11 March, 2021 | Active Travel

ANOTHER Glasgow City Centre street is to benefit from enhanced active travel provision.

Improvements are to be carried out to the cycle lane on Howard Street later this month.

The existing advisory, contra-flow lane which runs along the one-way street behind the St Enoch Centre, will have soft segregation fitted where possible, between Jamaica Street and Dunlop Street.

The project is part of the Spaces for People programme which is providing additional space for physical distancing and increasing the attractiveness of active travel for everyday essential journeys.

The council hope installation of segregation measures on Howard Street will discourage vehicles from parking in the cycle lane.

Access to designated disabled parking bays, metered parking bays and loading bays on Howard Street will not be affected.

Work is due to start on or around 20 March will take several weeks. The temporary infrastructure will be in place for a minimum period of 10 weeks after which it will be reviewed.

Improvements to the bike route in Cambridge Street were announced earlier this month.
