COP26 journey delays

As you may already be aware, the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) is being held in Glasgow from 31 October until 12 November.

As a result, a number of roads in the city centre will be closed during this time. Alternative routes will be in place but, with travel disruptions likely, motorists are being urged to plan their journeys in advance and travel out with peak times.

If you live in or near Glasgow, or intend to travel to the city during this time, please consider if your journey is essential before setting off.

Information needed to plan ahead is available at including full details of all the roads, footpaths and cycle ways that are going to be closed. The site also has details of all the alternative routes and day-by-day ‘heat’ maps which show where congestion is expected because of specific COP26 events.
