Consultation on potential George Square traffic ban

Published Monday 13 August 2018

Glaswegians are being asked for their views on removing traffic from the city's George Square.

Roads around the square, in the heart of the city, were closed during the European Championships - with a busy programme of cultural events attracting thousands as part of Festival 2018.

Although roads are now reopening, Glasgow City Council today confirmed it was considering making the move permanent in future - and asked people to share their views.

Council Leader Susan Aitken said: "I think most Glaswegians would like a George Square that is focused more on people, rather than cars - but, with the experience of the European Championships fresh in people's minds, we're keen to hear what the city feels would work.

"We're already making some other significant changes to how the city works and moves; including establishing Scotland's first Low Emissions Zone and dedicating more space to walking and cycling through our £115m Avenues project."

People can have their say by completing a short online survey, which is live now
