South City Way

South City Way

The winner of the inaugural 2015-16 competition was Glasgow City Council’s ‘South City Way’ project.

segregated cycleway

This will see the creation of a 3km segregated cycleway from the densely-populated Southside of Glasgow into the city centre, running from Queen’s Park, along Victoria Road, to the Merchant City district.

Vibrant Streets

The project will also improve facilities for those on foot, creating more vibrant streets and improving the look and feel of the area.
