Sta­tion­ary minds

The Scotsman - - Perspective / Letters To The Editor -

Dundee Coun­cil mir­rors Ed­in­burgh Coun­cil in keeping its bus and train sta­tions far apart (Hec­tor Ma­clean, Let­ters, 9 November).

As ad­vised over 20 years ago, Ed­in­burgh had an ideal va­cant lo­ca­tion for the bus sta­tion at the east end of the Waver­ley site, but de­spite con­stant lip ser­vice by our politi­cians for in­te­grated trans­port ser­vices, the coun­cil de­cided to build their new HQ there in­stead – so the old, dis­abled, par­ents with young chil­dren et al are forced to con­tinue with the half-mile walk, of­ten in wet and windy weather.

And Glas­gow’s not miles bet­ter!
