Why is the Kelvin Way being closed?

Glasgow City Council said that the road needs to be closed ahead of COP26 so that preparations can be carried out ahead of the summit, which lasts from October 31 to November 12.

It said that the high profile of the attendees and the important of discussions means that some roads and routes need to be either closed or restricted, as part of security plans.
