UPDATE 8th July 2013
PROJECT ACCOMPLISHED - 'The Bridge to Nowhere' has finally been completed. Click here to find out about the completed project.
Sustrans is working in Glasgow on the unfinished 'Bridge to Nowhere' – which links central Glasgow to Anderston and beyond – to create a number of safe and attractive traffic free routes for pedestrians and cyclists between the City Centre, the Clyde Waterfront and the West of Glasgow.
The Bridge to Nowhere was funded by the Big Lottery Fund, Strathclyde Partnership for Transport, Cycling Walking and Safer Streets, Cycling Action Plan for Scotland funding directly from Transport Scotland, Community Landfill Tax and Road Safety Framework through Sustrans.
As well as completing the iconic Bridge to Nowhere (pictured in its unfinished state, above) the scheme will create a garden link from Kelvingrove Park via Elderslie Street and Argyle Street and rearrange Waterloo Street to allow two-way cycling along to Glasgow Central Station.
This project goes a long way to overcoming the barrier formed by the M8 which cuts through Glasgow and not only will provide a link to the riverside but also a link between the riverside promenades, the magnificent Kelvingrove Park and up the River Kelvin Way to the Forth and Clyde Canal. This route will become National Cycle Network Route 756.
The project will be completed in early July 2013 and launched on 8th July 2013.
A further event is planned on the 7th September 2013 to celebrate the successful project and promote it to route users throughout the area.
