Footway Widening on Tollcross Road Will Create Extra Spaces for People

Published: 17 July 2020

Work starts next week to temporarily widen some footways on Tollcross Road as part of our Spaces for People programme, which is providing extra space for physical distancing to protect public health and suppress a resurgence of COVID-19.

Tollcross Road

Tollcross Road (50m west of Crail Street to Maukinfauld Road) and Tollcross Road (between Wellshot Road and Anworth Street) will see short-term infrastructure adaptions that will make it easier for people to move around where space is limited, and more readily access shops, businesses, community facilities and public transport.

Tollcross Rd at Ogilvie

On-street parking will be suspended where necessary in the affected areas, with extra space for people made available by repurposing the immediate road space usually occupied by parked vehicles.

In general, the Spaces for People programme will see no reduction in the number of disabled parking bays available, and where any are removed to facilitate footway widening, an equivalent number of bays or greater, will be re-positioned nearby.

Spaces for People

Supported by £3.5m funding from the Scottish Government and administered by Sustrans Scotland, Spaces for People will see temporary infrastructure measures introduced across Glasgow to provide extra space for people to walk, wheel or cycle as COVID-19 restrictions remain in place.

Short-term measures across our city centres and neighbourhoods will see footways widened at pinch points to ease pedestrian movement and make it easier to access businesses, community facilities and public transport hubs. Consideration will also be given to the positioning of temporary strategic cycling routes to highlight cycling as an attractive, viable and long term commuting choice.

This temporary infrastructure is expected to be in place for a minimum period of 10 weeks, and reviewed in line with the Scottish Government's COVID-19: Framework for Decision Making - Scotland's Route Map through and out of the crisis.
