David Grevemberg, CEO, Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, attended the International Sports Event Management Conference in London today, commenting on the progress of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and outlining the legacy plans which have been in place since the bid was conceived.
Grevemberg said, “We have hung our aspirations on three pillars. Infrastructure, how the public and private sector can work together and the power and world-wide reputation Glasgow has as a major sports capital.”
Sustainable transport is a key focus for Glasgow with the concept of a ‘live city’ which will make it easy for people to travel around Glasgow. “We have park and ride solutions, new bicycle routes and we are looking into hybrid and electric transport. As London, we will be offering free transport with a ticket to the Games which we promised in our bid. The M74 ring road will also provide more convenient and reliable access to the city,” said Grevemberg.
