Overview of a road

Traffic & Travel


COP26 will be unlike other major events Glasgow has hosted, bringing its own unique challenges for our travel network. Due to the scale and complexity of the event, which involves the likes of World Leaders and climate activists, we will experience changes to the movement of traffic around the city.

Partners are currently undertaking Travel Demand Management (TDM) work to inform how we manage the potentially increased demands on our network to accommodate restrictions to usual traffic flow and influence travel behaviour. Where restrictions and road closures are required, planners are developing local traffic management plans in these areas. Further details of these will be published here, when available.

Businesses and residents directly affected by planned disruption will receive specific, direct communications forewarning them of the likely impact during specified periods and business engagement sessions will be publicised and held closer to the event.
