WORK is underway to upgrade a "notoriously complex' Glasgow junction.

The double-roundabout at Westland Drive, Danes Drive and Victoria Park Drive North is set to be replaced by traffic lights in an effort to simplify it.

The council has confirmed that the aim of the replacement is to enhance safety and switch out the "challenging" current setup.

A spokesman said: “We are overhauling this junction to make it safer for pedestrians and other road users.

“The double-roundabout layout has proved challenging for people crossing the road at this location.

"There are also times of high footfall at the junction, such as after events at Scotstoun Stadium or at the end of school day, that can make it harder to navigate the junction safely.

"We looked at different options when redesigning the junction and we believe installing traffic lights is the most suitable measure for improving road safety at this location.

"We are fully committed to creating the conditions in neighbourhoods across the city that encourage active travel as the preferred choice for everyday journeys."

Local MP Carol Monaghan and Councillor Feargal Dalton were "delighted" to hear the change.

The SNP representative of Glasgow North West said: “I am delighted to see that work on this dangerous junction is finally happening.

"The crossing will now be safer for pedestrians and cyclists, including those accessing the park and schoolchildren travelling to and from school.”

The councillor added: “Over the years many people have asked that something be done to make this junction safer for pedestrians, cyclists, and parents with young children in prams or on scooters.

"Concerns have been raised at local community councils and at the Victoria Park Area Partnership on numerous occasions.

"I am grateful to council officers who have responded to these concerns.”
