The dates are:

Funding of £9m has been allocated through the Glasgow City Region Deal to improve the look of Byres Road.

Work will start on the ground in late 2018.

The team have said they want to make the street more friendly for pedestrians.

Trees will also be a feature in part, but the scope for planting is limited by space.

* The Inclusive design workshop on Monday 7 August is specifically for disabled people, elderly people and those with long term health conditions.

It will be held in an accessible West End venue on Monday 7 August.
