BATTLEFIELD Walking And Cycling Project Expands In Three Directions

PLANS to make a major Glasgow south side junction more people-friendly look set to be expanded.

Public consultation was held about the Battlefield Rest intersection late last year with improvements being looked at such as new public space and footways, improved public transport and new pedestrian crossings.

Now Glasgow City Council’s convener for sustainability and carbon reduction, has revealed that the area being looked at is much bigger.

She said: “I am delighted that we have secured Sustrans funding to produce concept designs for this junction, including a full community engagement programme.”

Councillor Richardson continued: “The redesign will bring improvements for walking, cycling and public transport, and extend towards Victoria Road, Langside Monument and Holmlea Road.

“This initial consultation and design phase will be starting soon and last a year.”
