Connecting Woodside

Connecting Woodside Logo

Formerly known as Woodside Mini-Holland this is an area wide active travel project which is a first of its kind in Scotland. The project bid navigated a 3 stage judging process with Glasgow being successful in achieving funding.

The project is considered as having four main elements:

  • Place - Environmental enhancements making the area an attractive place to live and visit.
  • Segregated cycle tracks - Safe cycle routes and excellent public transport integration.
  • Permeability and connectivity - Improved walking opportunities and attractive pedestrian links.
  • Outreach work - At least 5% of the project budget will be allocated for outreach activities aimed at encouraging active and sustainable travel.

Raeberry Street

Raeberry Street quietway proposes to break down the barriers to active travel by providing a low traffic route with increased visibility for those that are less comfortable on busy routes and wish to travel at a gentler pace that is inviting to all users with varying abilities.

The quietway will offer better crossing facilities, larger footway areas, enhanced green spaces and active travel connectivity that's accessible to all.

North Woodside Road Junction

The enhancement works to improve the junction of North Woodside Road and Maryhill Road for those walking and cycling have now been completed. These works included the installation of new signalised pedestrian and cycle crossings, along with the reallocation of carriageway space to introduce soft landscaping on North Woodside Road. The project also saw the removal of railings to allow ease of access to green space, a relocation of recycling facilities and the introduction of cycle parking.  The improvements to this junction facilitate safer and easier connectivity for those walking and cycling throughout the Woodside area, and beyond.

Thank you to all who engaged with Glasgow City Council, providing valuable feedback throughout the design process.

St George's Road

The provision of dedicated, separated cycle infrastructure on St George's Road will connect Sauchiehall Street Avenue and the City Centre to the existing Garscube Road cycle segregation, Claypits nature reserve and the Forth and Clyde Canal. This cycle facility will also provide a direct, safe and inclusive connection for the communities of Woodside and Woodlands whilst supporting travel options for the recent regeneration of the communities of Hamiltonhill, Sighthill and Port Dundas.

New cycle facilities on St George's Road will also see direct and safe connections between the proposed Quietway routes on North Woodside Road, Braid Street, West Princes Street and also the future "Underline" route at New City Road being delivered as part of the City Centre Avenues programme. 

St George's Road Consultation History

The Connecting Woodside project team have previously consulted on concept proposals for the introduction of a segregated cycle track on St George's Road. Please find the consultation reports below for the following engagement exercises. 

As the St George's Road phase of the Connecting Woodside project has seen delays due to the impact of the global pandemic and structural issues at the Woodside Viaduct on the M8, the project team have made the decision to undertake a consultation exercise for the full length of the proposed route to allow comments to be received on the current concept design.
