As part of the Glasgow City Region City Deal funding, approximately £115 million is being invested in Glasgow city centre to deliver the "Avenues" programme, which will result in a transformation of the city centre's streetscape and public realm - making it more "people-friendly", more attractive, greener, more sustainable and more economically competitive.
The project will deliver a key strategic objective of the City Centre Strategy and Action Plan 2014-19: an integrated network of continuous pedestrian and cycle routes across the city centre.
Design and construction work is being phased over the period 2018 to 2024. Construction work began with the Sauchiehall Street "pilot" project in 2018.
The EIIPR programme is essentially a quality place-making scheme that will transform 17 key streets and adjacent areas (or "Avenues") in Glasgow city centre, through the introduction of an improved external environment that will rebalance traffic modes, introduce green and SMART infrastructure, and place "people" firmly at the heart of the project vision and design strategy.
The ambitious project aims to transform the face of the city for all those who live, work and visit. It will see key Glasgow city-centre streets redesigned to protect and prioritise space for cyclists and pedestrians, improve connectivity, introduce sustainable green infrastructure through attractive streetscapes and enhancing biodiversity and improve the way public transport is accommodated.
The improvements include:
Public consultations on the Avenues designs are being phased over the period 2018 to 2022. There are no current public consultations currently taking place, but this page will be updated when new consultations begin.
Initial public consultations have already taken place for:
You can still see all the initial design proposals for all of those streets via the Related Documents section on this page, but the consultation periods have now closed. More detailed design is now progressing on each of these streets, taking account of people's comments. Please note that the finalised proposals may therefore differ from the initial design proposals shown under Related Documents.
The current projects are listed below:
Sauchiehall Street between Charing Cross and Rose Street will act as a pilot project for the overall Avenues programme. Construction work commenced in 2018 and are currently nearing completion.
Other Avenues will be progressed in phases between now and 2024.
A map showing the overall Avenues network and phasing of individual streets can be downloaded from the Related Documents section on this page.
