Garscube Bridge to Claypits Nature Reserve

This week, the new footbridges to access the Claypits Nature Reserve were opened up to the public. This is a major investment in supporting people's access to nature and promotes outdoor learning to the local communities.

The opening of the Garscube Bridge link improves access for people on foot and bike getting around the nature reserve from the towpath of the Forth and Clyde Canal.

Storm Alex flooding in Kelvingrove Park

Earlier this month, pathways within Kelvingrove Park were blocked by heavy rainfall over a three day period.

The park is providing open spaces and green infrastructure that forms part of critical flood risk management. 

Pop up cycle lane on Kelvin Way

This week, I found the pop up cycle lane on Kelvin Way which is a Space for People project. Since 29th September, the entrance from Sauchiehall Street providing access to Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery has a one way system for vehicles alongside the cycle lane.

The remainder of Kelvin Way remains car-free for the use of walkers, cyclists and people exercising. This is providing much appreciated space for residents to enjoy being outdoors.
