A SOUTH side road could soon be modeled on the Danish city of Copenhagen.

Victoria Road is to undergo a revamp that will make commuting easier for pedestrians, cyclists and buses.

Council bosses are now calling on locals to make their views known about the major Govanhill thoroughfare.

One of the suggestions put forward for the road is to introduce segregated cycle lanes “in the style of stepped kerb such as in Copenhagen”.

The Glasgow City Council proposal adds: “Victoria Road has been identified as a key route for cyclists and excellent facilities to provide an effective transport hub for public transport.

“A number of significant improvements to this road are proposed which should benefit the whole community.”

Local councillor Soryia Siddique said: “I welcome local stakeholder’s views on possible improvements that could be made to Victoria Road to encourage those living and working in the area to enhance travel options, including walking and cycling.

“It is important that a public consultation event is planned to assist in this process by taking on board the aspirations of local communities.”

Plans suggested would redesign the road to introduce zebra crossing instead of traffic lights that would replace the current central islands.

At the moment, pedestrians have to cross the road in two sections – following the changes they would be able to cross Victoria Road in one go.

Bosses also want to add in a segregated cycle lane either Danish in style or similar to that in Waterloo Street in the city centre.

And they also hope the new plans will include bus stop islands to let bus passengers cross safely to buses.

The proposed scheme adds: “In conjunction with the Glasgow bike hire scheme and Victoria Road train station, it is envisaged that this area will become a true transport hub offering choice of travel.”

A public consultation event will be held at Govanhill Baths, 99 Calder Street, Glasgow, on November 26 from 3pm to 7pm.
