Glasgow’s Space for Distancing initiative has been awarded £3.5 million from Sustrans Scotland to support physical distancing measures across the city and help to stifle the spread of COVID-19.

Funded by the Scottish Government and administered by Sustrans, the ‘Spaces for People’ programme will provide additional space for physical distancing in public places for people to walk, wheel or cycle while COVID-19 restrictions remain in place.

The money will go towards temporary travel infrastructure in the city centre, city neighbourhoods and active travel routes, and will form a key part of the city’s strategy for economic recovery.
