Connecting Woodside

Connecting Woodside

This project takes inspiration from transport infrastructure in the Netherlands and will deliver an exemplary walking and cycle-friendly neighbourhood in the Woodside community.

segregated cycling

The project includes a segregated cycle route along St George’s Road from Charing Cross to Possil Road, which will connect to the Sauchiehall Street ‘Avenue’ cycleway that is currently being delivered. The project also includes the expansion of the cycle network into the city centre, Great Western Road, Maryhill, Garscube Road and the Forth and Clyde Canal in a bid to encourage cycling as the favoured commuter option.

Major Redesign

Pedestrian and cycle crossing facilities at St George’s Cross Subway station will also undergo major redesign, improving the accessibility of the station and the surrounding streets.
