Queen Margaret Drive Consultation
What do we have here?
Some good options to get stuck into. Could pair up nicely with Byres Road if done well.
@jim-collinson wow, I wasn't aware of this! Some good options here.
Inspiration for Byres Road!Queen Margaret Drive Public Consultation Event76 Kelbourne Scout Hall
The aim of this event is to highlight design options available for Queen Margaret Drive and to gather comments. The outcome is to achieve a design that can be constructed in partnership with Sustrans and the local community.

The website glasgowgis.maps.arcgis.com is proving unreliable right now.

@un I am looking forward to seeing the proposals at the scout hall on 22nd Nov.
The consultation will allow acceptable designs to progress in order to achieve match funding from Sustrans in 2018/19.
The original weblink is still not working but I did some poking around their website and found overview images: https://imgur.com/a/Vw30S.
I couldn't find an overview for option 1 but the other 3 are here:
Looks like there's a Queen Margaret Drive community twitter: https://twitter.com/QMDCommunity
Does anyone know the people involved?

Also a QMD Facebook page - don't need to have FB account to view it.
I hope to be along to the consultation tomorrow afternoon.
Looks like you can access the QMD consultation pages here: http://www.glasgow.gov.uk/qmd
Within the above link you can find their questionnaire.

Anyone else have trouble submitting questionnaire? On my phone every time I go to press button page jumps to top. I've given up for tonight - will try at work.
@dashedlines others have commented on the website being mobile unfriendly.
It looks like the bidirectional path on the West side of QMD was the preferred option. The consultation website has been updated to reflect this: glasgow.gov.uk/qmd
They're now consulting on two different junction arrangements for Hotspur Street / Kelvinside Avenue:
You can state your preferred option in the questionnaire. The webpage scrolling is a bit odd though and you may lose you input if you scroll away from the questionnaire.
There's also a public drop-in event on Wed 2nd May 3-7pm, Scout Hall, 76 Kelbourne St. The flyer has been uploaded to Facebook here.
Bus stop bypass:
It looks like there are "rumble strips" on the approach to the bus stop bypass. I believe the Sauchiehall St path also had these added.
There is a lack of continuous pavements over minor side-roads and the junction mouths look large. Extending the cycle path kerb closer to the junction mouth would help.
