An online petition has been set up to expand Glasgow’s subway system into Castlemilk.
The Think Outside the Circle campaign says unlike other cities such as New York, London and Paris, Glasgow has never extended its original single line system first built in 1896.
They have suggested adding a further four lines to the system, one of which would end in Castlemilk.
So far 4,185 people have signed the Think Outside the Circle petition, which is calling on Strathclyde Partnership for Transport and Scottish minister for Transport Humza Yousaf to extend the Subway.
The campaign is targeting 5,000 signatures.
The online petition states: “The Subway is not accessible to the majority living in Glasgow and as a result is underused for a city of its size.
“The ridership of Glasgow’s Subway compares poorly to that of geographically smaller and less populated cities such as Lisbon whose annual underground ridership is 140.9 million, while Glasgow Subway’s annual ridership is 12.8 mil, despite having the larger population.
“An extended Subway network would provide a lifeline to isolated communities, improve everyone’s overall mobility, and reduce reliance on cars and the problem of scarcity of parking spaces.”
However SPT have already knocked back the proposals, stating that the costs would be too much.
A spokeswoman for Strathclyde Passenger Transport said: “There are no plans to extend the Subway.
“A report from 2007 highlighted two options for the Subway - the modernisation of the existing system or consideration of a possible extension to the East End of Glasgow.
