Section A:

Figure 1 below presents Section A which includes Fenwick Road between the Glasgow – East Renfrewshire boundary to the north at Merryburn Avenue and the boundary of Giffnock Town Centre at Braidholm Road to the south.

Proposals will seek to reallocate carriageway space to provide protected uni-directional "bike and roll" corridor from Giffnock linking to similar facilities within Glasgow City and extending to Shawlands. Key design considerations include management and retention of residential parking where possible as part of a future parking protected layout as per figure 3 below.

Section C:

Figure 5 below presents Section C extending from south of Giffnock Town Centre at Church Road to Berryhill Road along Fenwick Road.

This section represents a continuous section of dualled carriageway with a view to reallocate the nearside general traffic lane to form a dedicated “bike & roll” facility. A competitive tendering exercise has recently been completed to reallocate the nearside traffic lane using temporary traffic management measures and is likely to commence November 2020.

Key design consideration include the development of an appropriate light segregation module and, following extension of scheme, appropriate treatments at Eastwood Toll Roundabout to ensure the safe conveyance of cycle traffic through the junction.

Section D:

Figure 6 below presents Section D extending from Eastwood Toll to Malletsheugh Roundabout at Hunter Drive and represents a continuous section of former dual carriageway along Ayr Road.

A competitive tendering exercise is currently underway with a view to utilise temporary traffic management measures to formalise the existing cycle facility. The primary aim is to safeguard the existing uni-directional cycle lane through the provision of light segregation features. This will effectively convert existing provision from an advisory cycle lane to a mandatory facility with general on-street parking restricted.

Additional key design considerations include a proposed speed limit reduction from 40mph to 30mph and the introduction of parking restrictions through use of Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders. Issues are also present with existing junction layouts (most notably Eastwood Toll) with future design objectives seeking to mitigate any potential conflicts and improve overall safety for cycle traffic. Future design solutions should also integrate aspirations for a ‘streamlined bus corridor’. This should therefore be considered as part of a dynamic and evolving approach moving forward.

ERC008 - A727; Eastwood Toll - Spiersbridge Roundabout (Strategic Cycle Corridor 4)

Figure 7 below highlights the extent of proposed A727 (Strategic Cycle Corridor 4) cycle infrastructure (“bike & roll”) measure. The extent of the corridor is approximately 1km and extends from the Eastwood Toll roundabout in the east to the main car park entrance of Rouken Glen Park to the west.

Initial investigations undertaken suggest a bidirectional cycle facility may be incorporated through road space reallocation of the southern nearside general traffic lane. This would subsequently link into existing and proposed active travel facilities within the area.
