03 Aug 2012

S4M-02405 John Mason # (Glasgow Shettleston) (Scottish National Party): That the Parliament is disappointed with Glasgow City Council’s response to major road closures, especially in what it considers the council’s lack of information and communication with members of the public, local businesses and elected members; understands that, previously, Sauchiehall Street was closed for a considerable period and now London Road, a strategically important route through Glasgow Shettleston, has been closed since 13 January 2012 due to a dangerous building; notes the frustration of local people in Bridgeton, who have been made homeless and had their businesses closed; further notes the disruption to transport, and considers that there is confusion over revised bus routes and for drivers from outwith the area.
