COVID-19: Keeping Things Moving

Glasgow receives funding for active travel infrastructure to tackle COVID-19

Glasgow City Council has received funding to support new active travel infrastructure in the city.

The Scottish city has been awarded £3.5 million from Sustrans Scotland to support the city's Space for Distancing to support physical distancing measures across the city and help to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Funded by the Scottish Government and administered by Sustrans, the 'Spaces for People' programme will provide additional space for physical distancing in public places for people to walk, wheel or cycle while COVID-19 restrictions remain in place.

The funding will go towards temporary travel infrastructure in the city centre, city neighbourhoods and active travel routes, and will form a key part of the city's strategy for economic recovery. These measures will help to ensure sufficient space on footways for businesses and their customers while the requirement for two metres of physical distancing between people remains in place.
