Wilson Street temporary road change

We’re working on a temporary road design change for lower Wilson Street, Newtown.

There has been talk in the past of Wilson Street being part of a cycleway connecting people riding from Kilbirnie and Newtown. This is now part of our Innovating Streets, and the idea is to try something different to make it safer, and nicer for people walking .or biking between Kilbirnie and Newtown, while retaining car access for the people who live there.

We had an Open Day with the community of lower Wilson Street, and surrounding streets in May 2021. We asked people to tell us their views about this safer connection via Wilson Street, how it functions, what they liked, and how they liked to use lower Wilson Street.
