Glasgow Centre for Population Health (GCPH) has published a report – Active Travel in Glasgow: what have we learnt so far – which brings together GCPH learning on transport and health, with a specific focus on active travel.

In 2007, the GCPH established a programme of work to gather and analyse information about levels of active travel, to improve understanding of trends and influences on travel choices, and to evaluate the impact of transport policies and programmes on active, sustainable travel in Glasgow and the Clyde Valley area.

The infographic below shows the key findings from this research.

The Clyde Walkway app has been launched. The app covers the 65 km stretch between the vibrant city of Glasgow and the largest waterfall in the UK at the Falls of Clyde, allowing walkers and cyclists to explore one of Scotland’s Great Trails.

The Clyde Walkway app breaks the route into five manageable stages and invites users to make their own way along the fascinating route, depending on their interests and time available for traversing the route. Working on GPS, app users can chart their progress on the route as they go, even through rural areas with limited mobile signal. The app is available to download from the app store and the google play store.

Space for Cycling Glasgow are organising a family friendly ride on Sunday 22 October for a Better Byres Road that has a pleasant walking environment, safe cycling provision, and low volumes of motor traffic.

The latest design proposals for Byres Road lack a firm commitment in putting people first. They want a Byres Road in which a young child can cycle safely, a place where you can hear yourself chatting to a friend whilst crossing the street with ease and a safe street in which parents don’t have to worry about their children.

Friends of the Earth Scotland are holding an event looking at Tackling Glasgow’s Air Pollution. The event will run from 6.30-8.30pm on Thursday 2 November 2017 at The Project Café, 134 Renfrew Street, Glasgow G3 6ST.

Levels of air pollution in Glasgow are breaking safety standards. Pollution has been linked with respiratory and cardiovascular illnesses, stunted foetal development as well as dementia and diabetes.

Glasgow City Council recently passed proposals to introduce a Low Emission Zone (LEZ) into the city, in line with the Scottish Government’s promise to have Scotland’s first LEZ in operation by 2018.

The event is free to attend but please reserve your place via the Eventbrite website.
