A comment on the ET’s website about the news that Stefan King’s G1 group’s proposal to open a nightclub in the old railway station in the Botanic Gardens is not popular with locals…

What other city would allow such a fantastic asset as an already built underground station and line serving it, running below prime real estate, to remain closed and mothballed? Just reopen the station/line SPT, get your b!oody fingers out and start providing a city as major as Glasgow with a proper, 21st Century rapid transit system! No more bul!****, no more Subway closing at 6pm on a Sunday etc. Start re-opening the many disuses underground lines in Glasgow and do what you should be doing for this city!! Other cities would love to have so many already built underground lines beneath them, the tragedy for Glasgow is this hopeless, corrupt, crony-ridden city council and useless SPT have NO vision for Scotland’s major city.

The city has seen many recent debates around the future of public transport. What do you think?

One thought on “More on transport opportunities wasted

  1. I REALLY don’t see what all this fuss is about. Flats were built just a little further up this line at Kirklee some decades ago so the line is already unusable. What difference would one more CPO make if National Government Transport Policy one day shifted toward public transport and the development of the railway networks? The G1 group proposes the recreation of the original station building (which was lost to fire, Westenders should be grabbing this opportunity with both hands and then start a campaign to close it down – AFTER the station has been rebuilt!
