Residents are invited to view and give feedback on proposals to improve transport links in Clydebank.

The plans were developed following the 2015 Clydebank Charrette – an intensive consultation which involved local residents, businesses and stakeholders in planning the future of the town centre.

The transport proposals were created to improve connectivity to and within Clydebank Town Centre, with a focus on walking and cycling routes and public transport options. Also included is a specific focus on connections to the Queens Quay development.

All proposals follow the Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance and a number of options have been identified. The options will be available for viewing at an open event at Clydebank Town Hall from 9.30am to 6pm between Monday, February 27, and Friday, March 3. On Tuesday, February 28, the event will remain open until 7pm.

Councillor Patrick McGlinchey, Convener for Infrastructure and Regeneration, said: “The Clydebank Charrette was vital in gathering the views of the people of Clydebank when it comes to the future of their town. And now we hope to hear from residents again, specifically on the transport proposals that were developed as a result of the Charrette.”

Councillor David McBride, Vice-Convener for Infrastructure and Regeneration, added: “Continuing the theme of community engagement that was so important to the success of the Charrette, the Council wants to allow residents the chance to see the proposals for transport links in Clydebank and I would encourage all residents to have their say.”
