Re-vamped streets around the Central rail station in Glasgow, with cyclists and

pedestrians given as much priority as cars, came out tops in this year’s

Integrated Transport Awards, chaired this week by former transport minister, Steven

Norris.

The timing's neat: Glasgow is this year co-hosting the world’s biggest cycle planning conference, Velo-city, which is taking place in Scotland for the first time in its 21-year history.

Erl Wilkie, Velo-city 2001's director, : “The bike, and ways of catering for the bike, is civilising our streets. I expect Velo-city 2001 delegates to be impressed by the way Scotland is starting to fall in love with the bike again.”
