Sauchiehall Street Avenue Project
Peter talks to Terry Robinson and Catriona Burness about new street designs taking place in a number of places in Glasgow. The Sauchiehall Street Avenue Project is well in advance. This type of design is proving largely inaccessible to blind people since they have to cross cycle lanes where you are unable to hear a bike coming. With no complete pedestrian control crossings, the future street plans for Glasgow are a no no.
