Glasgow City Council is delivering an Active Travel Strategy to supersede the existing Strategic Plan for Cycling 2016-2025 and designed to achieve significant modal shift across the city to walking, wheeling and cycling.
The strategy is a recognition of the positive impact that transport, and active travel in particular, can make towards city's wider policy objectives on Climate and the Environment, Health and Wellbeing, Inclusion and Equality and Wealth and Inclusive Growth.
The strategy is framed by three policy and action areas:
The draft Active Travel Strategy and the Liveable Neighbourhoods Plan are both part of a suite of transport related plans and documents which will create a modern, resilient and sustainable transport system for Glasgow, to help transform the city into a more inclusive, liveable and attractive place for residents, businesses and visitors.
The suite of transport related documents will include:
A key output from the strategy will be the City Network, which will provide an accessible, safe, coherent and direct active travel network across Glasgow. To be delivered by 2030, the City Network will connect key amenities and drivers of travel such as education, business, retail and culture.
There will also be development of the Neighbourhood Network with a focus on walking and wheeling. This Neighbourhood Network will enable easy everyday active journeys within and between neighbourhoods.
City Network and Neighbourhood Network will be co-created as part of the Glasgow's Liveable Neighbourhoods programme at a multi-neighbourhood level.
The proposed City Network map can be viewed and commented on here. When you're able to view the map simply drop a pin on the Glasgow City Network and share your experience of that route or street, or comment on what would improve this network. Comments about walking and wheeling - as well as cycling - on the City Network, are welcomed.
We welcome your feedback on the draft Strategy, and the proposed City Network, to help us shape and refine them.
