This Spaces for People workstream takes a street-by-street approach, with temporary measures introduced to allow priority to be given to pedestrian space around our transport hubs, core shopping streets and any identified pedestrian pinch points.
Early projects completed include the provision of additional queuing space around Glasgow Central Station High and Low Level entrances, as well as footway widening and road closures in and around George Square.
Sustainable transport corridors have also been added; with a bus gate introduced at George Square (south) and South Frederick Street (north) and a bus lane on Cochrane Street.
Footways have also been widened on Renfield Street and West George Street (between Wellington Street and Renfield Street) and to support students returning to college and university, extra space has also been created on Montrose Street. We have also added bus boarders that are built out into the road to provide additional queuing space at bus stops on Glassford St (outside Marks and Spencer) and Trongate (outside Tesco Express).
