Cycling Banner 2015

Welcome to Glasgow City Council's cycling pages.

Glasgow's cycling infrastructure is improving every year. Currently we have just over 301 km of cycle lanes of various types including segregated, shared and marked/signed on street. Additionally we have surpassed our installation of cycle racks of 100 per year each year since 2007.

We have a strategic approach to improving the overall network. However, should there be areas where relatively minor improvements would help facilitate your journey, whether through installation of dropped kerbs or additional cycle parking, then contact us via the email address provided

Glasgow's "City Ways" are those cycle routes that radiate from the city centre. They are key routes that have business, cultural, educational and residential destinations along and in close proximity to them. They are characterised by constructed features such as segregated cycle lanes and links into the wider cycle network, providing greater cycle access to all aspects of our city.


West City Way - Temporary closure Elderslie St. / St Vincent St.

A section of the West City Way on Elderslie St. / St Vincent St. will be closed from 20 October until 24 October to facilitate essential electrical and telecommunications works. 

Traffic management will be in place for the duration and cyclists are requested to comply with this.

Polmadie Bridge

Glasgow City Council has appointed JCJ Group to carry out the works to remove the unsafe bridge deck, leaving the piers in place. This will restore access to the footways along the riverbank and allow restrictions on river users to be lifted.

Work is scheduled to begin the week commencing 12 October, programmed to take 5 months to complete. Access will be required at both sides of the footbridge. From the north this will be taken via Glasgow Green. From the south this will be via Haughview Terrace.

Please be assured that every effort will be taken to minimise the impact of these works.
