Cycle journeys on the South West City Way: a descriptive analysis

Mar 2017

The report considers usage of the South West City Way which provides cyclists with a link from Pollokshields in the south west of the city to the Tradeston (or Squiggly) Bridge over the Clyde, which leads to the city centre. 

Data from a cycle counter was available for this route from March to October 2016. The route appears to be used heavily 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 cycle journeys on the Anderston-Argyle Street Bridge, the Hands Up Survey of methods of travel to school for Glasgow school pupils, and analysis of Glasgow’s public bike hire scheme. Our infographic highlights key facts from both City Way reports:
