Glasgow to spend £6m expanding cycle network
Glasgow City Council has announced that it will invest £6m to improve cycling facilities and infrastructure.
The 2016-2025 Strategic Plan for Cycling approved yesterday commits funding of £2m a year over the next three years, on the basis that match funding is sourced from other key stakeholders.
Aims of the new strategy include enhancing the city's cycling infrastructure and increasing the provision of safe cycle routes segregated from traffic.
Bailie Elaine McDougall, the council's executive member for transport, environment and sustainability, said: "This new strategy outlines our plans to transform Glasgow into the most cycle-friendly city in Scotland. To achieve this will require substantial investment and it is our intention to invest £6m over the next three years if we can get the Scottish Government and other stakeholders to do the same."
