The City Network plans will add 270km of cycleways and improved footways along main roads across Glasgow.
The City Network is “based upon a vision that active travel becomes the first choice for everyday journeys and will be designed to ensure easy access to safe, segregated routes from homes, schools, key amenities and cultural destinations throughout the city.”
The ultimate aim is ensuring that anyone who cycles will be able to reach most of the city within 30 minutes and almost all of the city within an hour.
Councillor Anna Richardson, City Convener for Sustainability and Carbon Reduction, said: “This is a huge step forward for active travel in Glasgow.
“Active travel must be an integral part of the city’s efforts to reduce transport-related carbon emissions. We now have a very clear way forward to increase the number of people who regard walking, wheeling or cycling as their first choice for everyday journeys.
“Safety is the number one reason for people being discouraged from using active travel and in particular, cycling.
“By having an active travel network of safe, segregated infrastructure that is easily accessible to every home and school across the city, we can provide a viable alternative for the millions of car journeys that are less than three kilometres.
“Reducing our reliance on private vehicles and encouraging a shift to the most sustainable forms of transport can make a major contribution to Glasgow’s effort to tackle climate change.”
