Cycle journeys on the Anderston-Argyle Street Bridge: a descriptive analysis

Mar 2017

The report considers usage of the West City Way which provides a route from Kelvingrove Park in the west end of the city to Central Station in the city centre. 

A cycle counter placed on this route, at the entrance to a footbridge developed to take cyclists over the motorway from Argyle Street to Anderston, enabled examination of usage of this part of the route from July 2014 to July 2016. The route appears to be used heavily used for commuting purposes, and to be experiencing increasing use over time. 

This reports forms part of a series of reports detailing descriptive analyses of data relating to cycling in Glasgow. These reports provide a picture of aspects of current cycling activity within the city. The other three reports cover Glasgow’s public cycle hire scheme, cycle journeys on the South West City Way, and the Hands Up Survey of methods of travel to school for Glasgow school pupils. Our infographic highlights key facts from both City Way reports:
