Barriers to Cycling
I am staging a mini protest on Westland Drive to encourage Glasgow City Council to seriously consider introducing a pelican/zebra crossing at Westland Drive between the entrance to Victoria Park and Victoria Park nature walk. As a father of three young children we use this crossing every week and it can be terrifying trying to control young children who are on bikes/scooters and desperate to be in the park at this busy and confusing junction.
The pedestrian refuge in the middle of the road is far too small to safely accommodate a family or children with bikes/scooters mums with prams.
A map of this junction can be found here.
We would like to see a zebra crossing at this junction and potentially a complete re-think of the whole layout that prioritising people over cars/vehicles #RoadSafety.
If you have time please come along dressed as a superhero (because you need to be a superhero to cross this junction) or perhaps come with a “we want a zebra crossing” or “so hard to cross” type placard.
