Glasgow has unveiled plans to build a city-wide network of active travel infrastructure, which includes 270km of high quality cycleways and footpaths along main roads in the Scottish city.

In an effort to reduce the city's carbon footprint, Glasgow is encouraging people to cycle, rather than drive, with the improved infrastructure. The network is designed to ensure people have access to safe, segregated routes from their homes to schools, key amenities and cultural destinations throughout the city.
