We are continuing to develop and expand its cycle route network and associated infrastructure. This page will detail on-going projects and future projects.
Cycle lanes play an important part of delivering our Cycle Network Strategy. It is envisaged that much of the future network will be constructed from segregated cycle lanes. Segregated cycle lanes are dedicated bike lanes that increase feelings of safety and comfort, which makes cycling an attractive commuting option for those who are not used to riding their bikes regularly. Such lanes are already in place at Waterloo Street and in a short time the Tradeston cycle route. These routes use 'hard' segregation such as concrete kerbing, often involving major construction, expense and drainage works.
The purpose of the 'soft' or 'light' segregation trial is to monitor how alternative segregation products stand up to the climate, how durable they are and how they are perceived by pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. The original trial took place over the period of one year at Aikenhead Road, but has now been extended to cover other sites in the City Centre, Knightswood and Balornock, with the monitoring continuing.
