Several city centre pavements are to be widened as part of a system to allow more space for people to walk and cycle while keeping two metres apart from others.

Glasgow City Council is introducing a range of temporary measures in the area which will include footway widening, one-way operations and contraflow lanes.

The measurements are hoped to enable physical distancing and help to minimise the transmission of coronavirus
