1. Bridge to Nowhere, Glasgow


Project photograph

This scheme connects the current half-finished bridge over the M8 with a second over the Clydeside Expressway to form the hub of three routes which will transform walking and cycling in central Glasgow. The second will be a garden link from Kelvingrove Park via Elderslie Street and Argyle Street, whilst the third will rearrange Waterloo Street to allow two-way cycling along this largely level road to reach the existing very high quality cycling provision at Glasgow Central. This project will go a long way to overcoming the barrier formed by the M8 which cuts through Glasgow and will not only provide a link to the riverside but also a link between the riverside promenades and the magnificent Kelvin Grove Park.
