Welcome from the Chair.

In my role as Chair of Road Safety West of Scotland (RSWoS), I would like to welcome you to our website.

Membership of RSWoS consists of the twelve West of Scotland Local Authorities, Police Scotland and the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service.  Since its inception, the primary focus of RSWoS has been to work in partnership to deliver a quality, targeted programme of road safety education, engineering and enforcement.

Road safety is our priority – we aim to work as a collective to help achieve the casualty reduction targets as set out in Scotland’s Road Safety Framework to 2020.  Road safety is everyone’s responsibility but through RSWoS, we hope to deliver consistency in approach that will ultimately improve safety on roads throughout the West of Scotland and beyond.

Enjoy our website.

Active travel at the 'art' of the relief road

Posted on 20 February 2017

Youngsters are being urged to get on their bikes and help create an identity for East Dunbartonshire's newest active travel route. Phase 4 of Bishopbriggs Relief Road is currently under construction and the exciting project includes plans for a new walking/cycling route and bridge. East Dunbartonshire Council is calling on Bishopbriggs primary school pupils to create a design and suggest a name for the new route.  Up to three winners will see their suggestions transformed into two gateway signs, with the chance to win a new bike. The competition is open to all pupils at Bishopbriggs primary schools, from P1-P7. The deadline for entries is Friday 24 February.

The latest phase of Bishopbriggs Relief Road is creating a two-lane 50mph road - stretching 600 metres between Wester Cleddens Roundabout and a new roundabout, with another 100 metres of road on the north side of the railway. The existing stretch of Westerhill Road and bridge will be used as an active travel corridor - becoming a haven for walking and cycling.

Local schools have been given details of the competition. For more information, e-mail caroline.hay@eastdunbarton.gov.uk or call 0141 574 5766.
