The project includes segregated cycle routes which connect up with existing and future developments as part of Glasgow’s City Council’s wider vision for transport across the city. Segregated routes along the length of St George’s Road and Woodlands Road will connect through Charing Cross to the Sauchiehall Street ‘Avenue’ cycleway. The new route down Garscube Road will link to the Forth and Clyde Canal and the ‘Metal Petals’ underpass, connecting to the City Centre at Cowcaddens. Expanding the cycle network into the city centre will help encourage walking, cycling, scooting and wheeling as the favoured commuter options.
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.

In addition to the health and wellbeing benefits that the project will bring to the community, the creation of Connecting Woodside will strengthen local economies and increase road safety.
