The excitement is building as we welcome the 2014 Commonwealth Games to Glasgow. This will be an incredible event for the city and we are looking forward to a jam packed 11 days of sport and festivities. We have two members of staff involved in the games, Yvette Hutcheson is a Clydesider and Cheryl Dearie is part of the cast performing at the opening ceremony; we know both will be fantastic in their roles at Scotland’s biggest ever sporting event.
During the games there will be up to 1 million people travelling to and from areas in and around Glasgow so the transport network is going to be much busier. Some road and parking restrictions will be in place which may affect our usual response times. We have been preparing and planning for the impact the games will have for a number of months and have been in contact with our approved contractors to ask that they ensure they are familiar with all traffic restrictions so that any impact on response times is minimal. Further information on traffic management plans can be found at www.getreadyglasgow.com.
The 2014 Commonwealth Games will be incredible and we can’t wait for them to get started.
