Plans to introduce low speeds on the M8 going through the city and build ‘green’ walls to shield people from pollution are being considered by Transport Scotland.

Glasgow City Council have been in discussion with the agency to look at a mandatory speed limit, which could be as low as 30mph, as well as barriers to help reduce air pollution among other measures.

The council’s convenor for transport, councillor Angus Millar, has written to the Scottish Government asking for a series of short, medium and long term measures to be explored regarding the future of the M8, which also includes better air quality monitoring for the M8 in the city.
