Glasgow Community Plan

The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 requires Glasgow Community Planning Partnership to publish a Local Outcomes Improvement Plan that sets out our shared priorities for the city, where we plan to make improvements and over time show that we have made these improvements. In Glasgow this is the Glasgow Community Plan, which has been developed by partners in the city to articulate the focus and priority areas where joint action can make a real difference.

The Glasgow Community Plan has now been published online at www.glasgowcpp.org.uk/communityplan

Published alongside the Local Outcomes Improvement Plan are ten Locality Plans. Locality Plans set out how community groups, organisations, and local services can work together to make a difference to local areas and the lives of people who live and work there. These are living plans and will change as more local people get involved, and services in the local area change to meet local needs. These Locality Plans can be found at www.glasgowcpp.org.uk/thrivingplaces

Building Scotland’s Low Emission Zones (LEZs)

 

Building Scotland’s Low Emission Zones (LEZs)

 

We are writing to all community councils throughout Scotland in order to make them aware of a Scottish Government consultation called Building Scotland’s Low Emission Zones (LEZs)

 

We have progressively reduced air pollution in Scotland over recent years, but poor air quality – predominantly caused by road transport – remains an issue at a number of hotspots in our towns and cities.

 

Following the May 2017 local elections, several local authorities in major Scottish cities have made positive statements around LEZs, and we are encouraged to see the strong political will across local government to support improvements to air quality. Our Programme for Government committed to introducing LEZs into Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow between 2018 and 2020, and you may have read or heard in the media that the first LEZ will be put in place in Glasgow by the end of 2018.

 

The Building Scotland’s Low Emission Zones consultation paper sets out the proposed arrangements and options to deliver a consistent approach to designing, building and managing LEZs in Scotland.  We would therefore invite your community council, and residents in your area, to respond to the consultation at https://consult.scotland.gov.uk/transport-scotland/building-scotlands-low-emission-zones/ or by emailing your comments to lezconsultation@transport.gov.scot

 

The consultation will close at 23:59 on 28 November 2017.

 

Kind regards

Baillieston railway bridge replacement to improve local road network

https://www.networkrailmediacentre.co.uk/news/baillieston-railway-bridge-replacement-improves-local-road-network

Network Rail will shortly begin a year-long ÂŁ4m programme of work to replace and widen the bridge over the railway at Muirhead Road, Baillieston.

 The renewal of the bridge is part of a wider, rolling programme of maintenance work on our structures which is designed to extend their lifespan and keep our network safe and reliable.

Work will start on Monday September 4 and will be ongoing until September 2018. It includes the demolition and reconstruction of the existing concrete bridge deck which is gradually deteriorating and nearing the end of its life-span.

Replacing the bridge deck will ensure that the structure remains fit for purpose and the wider structure will also allow the removal of traffic lights and weight restrictions from the bridge.

Prior to demolishing the bridge deck, utilities which serve the community will be diverted on to a temporary structure which is a lengthy process and one which will be required again after the bridge deck has been reconstructed.

To deliver this work safely, Muirhead Road will need to close to vehicles for extended periods. The installation of a temporary footbridge will allow pedestrian and cycle access to be maintained throughout the bridge demolition and reconstruction.

Muirhead Road will close initially for a three week period in October before again needing to close for seven months from the middle of February 2018.

Work on the structure will include periods of piling, installation of foundations and steelwork, as well as demolition and other construction activities.

Billy McKay, Network Rail programme manager, said: “We know that Muirhead Road is an important route for local traffic and we do not take the decision to request its closure lightly.

“We understand the impact that this has for both road users and those next to the proposed diversion route. However, this is the most efficient and safest way to undertake the work required on the structure.

“Delivery of this project, which is part of our UK-wide railway upgrade plan, has been carefully planned with our contractors and we will complete the work with the minimum possible inconvenience to the local community.”

Network Rail has worked with Glasgow City Council to put in place an appropriate diversion and all local access has been retained either side of the bridge. The council has also made a funding contribution to the project to enable the weight restrictions and traffic lights to be removed.

If you have any questions about this work you can contact Network Rail’s 24 hour national helpline on 03457 11 41 41. For latest information and progress updates follow on twitter @NetworkRailScot
