I can't find out much about the Connectivity Commission online. I wondered if they might be able to influence Byres Rd and Meatmarket/Gallowgate. May be slightly too early if they're still being set up. Also, David Begg seems to be a professor in Plymouth. However, I found this event - https://connectpa.co.uk/events/achieving-sustainable-inclusive-growth-scotland/
Saw three guys gritting NCN7* on the M8 bridge today, one with a wheelbarrow and two with shovels.
What do you think it would take for Glasgow to acquire a fleet of cargo bikes (electrically assisted?) for gritting? On the 360 days they're not needed for gritting they could be dealing with litter....
I suspect they were actually gritting the path to Bellahouston Academy, but NCN7 happened to be on the same bridge.
I should really do the same. This forms part of my commute, and it can be really quite hairy. I've had everything form punishment passes, near-miss doorings and to very nearly the view of the underside of an HGV.
It's actually one of the sections that has put off some of my colleagues from commuting by bike, and for others often the thought of it is enough to make a grab for car keys.
@josephine The project is part of Sustran's Community Links PLUS "competition". It was 1 of 5 finalists, with the original intention of only 1 being funded. However, since the doubling of the Active Travel budget all 5 projects will be funded, including the Woodside Mini-Holland.
At the GoBike AGM Anna Richardson mentioned being involved.
@stephK has mentioned she is also interested in this project and may be participating in a focus group.

@dashedlines there would be no need to build a dedicated fastlink road. There's an existing access road past the Pump House.
I wonder if this is partly motivated by the slow bus route along Dumbarton Road. The excess private motor traffic impedes the buses.
