New Glasgow Blue Route Hubs Project
The Blue Route Hubs Project is a collaboration between Bicycle Nova Scotia (BNS) and several communities throughout the province, including the Town of New Glasgow. We launched the project to help communities evaluate their potential to develop cycling routes that make residents of all ages and people with disabilities feel comfortable cycling in their community. We want to encourage active transportation throughout the province by supporting efforts to build safe and convenient bike routes. There are three phases of project planning and you can learn more about the project phases for the Town of New Glasgow below.
Phase 1: Identify key bicycle network corridors
We are currently working with the New Glasgow community to identify three routes that are the top priorities for cycling infrastructure improvements. These connected routes will provide a basic bike network that is immediately functional and can act as the spine of the network for future growth.

Phase 2: Route Selection
We will work with community residents, planners, advisory committees, and stakeholders to select one of the three routes determined in Phase 1 to advance into the concept design stage. Together, we will select a cycling route based on a combination of its overall importance and feasibility of implementation in the near term.
Phase 3: Concept Design
Phase 3 of the project includes developing a concept design for the priority cycling route in New Glasgow.
