Bus shelter mystery
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.
