Glasgow to launch on-street bike parking scheme

A city-wide £250,000 pilot scheme to test the suitability of secure on-street cycle parking in 50 locations should launch this summer, Glasgow Live reports.

Glasgow City Council is reportedly in the process of carrying out a feasibility study ahead of the launch, which is expected to be completed by the end of next month, and hopes the scheme will encourage more people in the city to cycle.

The ongoing study will outline recommendations on financing, installing and managing on-street cycle parking infrastructure. The report to councillors states this will provide a ‘cost effective, secure and accessible system, which can be implemented across the city’.

Roads being considered for parking shelters include: Albert Road, Dixon Avenue, Bowman Street, Nithsdale Street, Argyle Street, Grange Road, Langside Road, Pollokshaws Road, Battlefield Gardens, Mingarry Street, Wilton Street, Eskdale Street, McLennan Street, White Street, Langside Lane, Keir Street, Kildrostan Street, Kenmuir Street, Armadale Street, Lomond House, Charles Street, Miller Street, Craigmiller Road, North Woodside Road, Sandfield Street, Garrioch Crescent, Turnberry Road, Dryburgh Gardens, Kelvinhaugh Street, Fairlie Park Drive, Woodcroft Avenue, Ashton Road, Lancaster Crescent, Arlinton Street, Steel Street, Queen Elizabeth Gardens, Balvicar Drive, Waverley Street, Langside Place, Coustonholm Road/Ettrick Place, Strathblane Gardens, Maxwell Road, Firhill Court Student Accommodation, Wester Common Road, Irongray Street, Roystonhill, Crossbank Crescent, Havelock Street, Fordyce Street and Ledaig Street.
