Glasgow to Become Mini Holland?

Plans for changing the North of the Clyde city district into bike friendly place are supposed to be funded from Sustrands Scotland’s Community Links fund, but Edinburgh and Inverness are also in the race for the £12m.

“The Mini-Holland has the potential to bring about a step change in cycling provision in the Woodside area. A complete network of Dutch-style segregated cycleways, complemented by filtered permeability on the back streets, would be truly transformative. It’s vital that this is the high standard to which the work is done. Unfortunately, the scheme is competing with a number of others across Scotland. The Scottish Government has decided that only one or two will be funded. I’ve no interest in seeing Edinburgh or anywhere else denied its own safe cycling infrastructure; the Scottish Government should fund every single one of the “exemplar” schemes by reallocating money from its bloated road-building programme,” said one of the campaigners for road.cc.

What do you think about this plan? Would you like Glasgow to change?

“We would urge anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area at the time of this incident to get in touch. We are also asking people to look out for these bikes – which are quite unique in appearance – particularly on selling sites. If you hear of anyone attempting to sell such a bike, we would like to hear from you,” said det. Sgt James Bond, of Nottinghamshire Police.
