A journey along Queen Margaret Drive

On Sunday, I went along to the festival day organised by Friends of Queen Margaret Drive. During my walkabout, I heard about the appeal for people to sign up and support investment in Queen Margaret Drive. 

Closed road for festival on 21st June.

The Hillhead ward covers a section of Queen Margaret Drive including the taxi rank and heritage features such as the Queen Margaret College designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. In recent weeks, there has been an exhibition in the Kibble Palace highlighting the importance of the G20 area and it is focused on gathering support for Queen Margaret Drive.

I have agreed with organisers of the exhibition to assist in promoting a well maintained, safer and less polluted street. Investment is needed in reducing traffic pollution and expanding cycle friendly aspects. The work by the Queen Margaret Drive Traders Association can link up with the plans to developing business opportunities within Byres Road. Business interests can work together to support Glasgow's West End.
