Welcome to Glasgow City Council's cycling pages.

Glasgow's cycling infrastructure is improving every year. Currently we have just over 301 km of cycle lanes of various types including segregated, shared and marked/signed on street. Additionally we have surpassed our installation of cycle racks of 100 per year each year since 2007.

We have a strategic approach to improving the overall network. However, should there be areas where relatively minor improvements would help facilitate your journey, whether through installation of dropped kerbs or additional cycle parking, then contact us via the email below.

Polmadie Footbridge Closure.

Polmadie Footbridge which crosses the River Clyde at Glasgow Green has been closed for reasons of public safety. A structural strength assessment found that the bridge could not carry loading with any margin of safety. The bridge is now closed to all pedestrians and cyclists and diversion routes will be signposted.

We are advised that it is safe to pass below the bridge, therefore there are no restrictions to river traffic.

We regret any inconvenience that this may cause and trust you will understand that the decision to close the structure to pedestrians and cyclists has been taken with their best interests in mind.
