COP26 Travel Update


Recommended Posts

For what it's worth it's not been as bad as predicted, yet. Most of the closures are on the north side of the river and affecting Partick and Finnieston areas. I'm told getting to parts of Govan, specifically near the Clyde by the BBC, Science Centre area is a challenge as well.

If you're travelling along the M8 or M74 then stay on until Ibrox or Govan don't try and come off early would be my advice. I think the best advice though is to try and park in the city centre, St Georges Cross or Cowcaddens area, there's a few multi story car parks near Cowcaddens, and jump on the Subway. It's driech morning in Glasgow and the traffic is very slow, if it's similar tomorrow night it could be grid lock.

Thankfully, I'm getting the train through tomorrow.  I take it the Subway won't be hugely impacted by it (I'm assuming it'll be beneath* those in attendance)?

 

 

*literally and metaphorically.  

There will be rail strikes but these may not take affect for a few days yet.

Yeah, I'll be coming along the M74 so hoping to miss the worst of it. Will be leaving Edinburgh early doors as well.
