Bus shel­ter mys­tery

Evening Times - - FEATURES -

RE­GARD­ING the ar­ti­cle about the tod­dler in­jured by the van­dalised bus shel­ter, who will hope­fully re­cover soon (Evening Times, Jan­uary 11).

I have al­ways won­dered why bus shel­ters in the city of Glas­gow are made of glass? Ev­ery area has them and ev­ery area has episodes of van­dal­ism.

I would be in­ter­ested to know which com­pany sup­plies/re­pairs these shel­ters on be­half of the coun­cil.

Also, it would be in­ter­est­ing to know whether the coun­cil is be­ing charged for the re­place­ment of van­dalised shel­ters or in­sur­ance cov­ers this?

If it is a con­tin­u­ous cost of re­place­ment be­ing charged to the coun­cil, then the com­pany must be laugh­ing all the way to the bank with coun­cil tax pay­ers’ money. I hope not!

It that ac­tu­ally is the case though, then my fi­nal ques­tions would be, who awarded the con­tract to the com­pany in the first place? When is the con­tract up? Which sup­pli­ers can sup­ply shel­ters with plas­tic or an­other ma­te­rial?

Then chil­dren will not be in­jured.

Marie McIl­wham, Crook­ston
