NCN7_LogoSTV Glasgow recently reported that Glasgow City Council have announced a £1.17m investment on cycling infrastructures across the region. Along with funding from Transport Scotland’s Cycling Walking and Safer Streets (CWSS) and UK charity Sustrans, the development will see more safe cycle routes rolled out throughout the city.

Sustrans will contribute £280,000 which will be used on a north-south cycle route in the city parallel to Buchanan Street, and the creation of a cycle link between Cardonald and the National Cycle Route 7 (NCN 7), a traffic-free route which runs from Sunderland to Inverness.

You can read more about this announcement on the STV Glasgow website.

The City Council are also currently consulting on their Strategic Plan for Cycling 2015-2025 – the deadline for responding is Fri 4 Sep 2015.
