Travelling around Glasgow during the 2014 Commonwealth Games

Travel around the city will be harder during the Games, make sure you know how your journey will be affected.
The Glasgow 2014 team and Glasgow City Council have worked closely over the past year to draw up travel and road closure plans during the Games which will have the least impact on commuters and event-goers.

It is anticipated that there will be inevitable disruption to transport around the city and its outskirts, and we would advise all Cordia staff to ensure they know what travel options will be available to them during the period of the Games.

Please ensure you leave appropriate time for travel, as it is expected that regular journeys will take longer than usual.

Road closures and parking restrictions will be in place for certain events such as the Marathon (July 27), Cycling Road Race (July 31) and Time Trial (August 3).

Roads will be closed from 3am on the day of the event until midnight.
Games Lanes will be in operation from July 13 in some areas, and July 21 in others. Where possible, these lanes will not operate on single carriageways so there should be minimal disruption.

These lanes are for the sole use of the Games Family and the emergency services, and, if required, diversions will be in place for other road users.
There will be road closures and parking restrictions in place around all venues, most of which will be active for the entirety of the Games.

The 2014 team is in the process of issuing guides to Venue Guides to all ticket-holders to help them familiarise themselves with all venues for their events.

Active travel may be the quickest way to reach events, as parking will not be available at any venues throughout the city.
Volunteers will be placed at strategic locations around Games Venues to direct ticket holders and to provide information for those travelling by foot or bike.

Public transport options will be available and will be clearly signposted.
