Passing through the South Side of Glasgow I noticed what a bad state some of the back lanes had fallen in to.
Litter was blown everywhere, fly tipped material was left unattended, not to mention the overgrown bushes and weeds.
It would be nice to see Glasgow City Council utilise the community payback teams and give these lanes are really good clean.
IN RESPONSE to the article, '70% think city buses unreliable' (May 7) I'd like to point out to your readers that the punctuality and reliability of First Glasgow's services have never been better.
For the year 2011/12 First Glasgow's reliability was recorded at a record 99%, while punctuality is also at a record high.
Your article was prompted by a survey of just 148 people.
First Glasgow moves some 2 million passengers every week.
We contract an independent organisation that surveys thousands of our customers annually, and the latest results, up to the end of January 2012, show that 84% of passengers are 'fairly' or 'very satisfied' with our overall service.

It seems silly to have the Big Wheel in place in George Square all year round (May 12).
I pass it regularly, and most of the time it is standing idle, with no visitors.
Once a year is a treat, but there's obviously not a lot of custom for it out with the festive season

THE Scottish Government's proposal of a 50p cost per unit of alcohol indicates they are not taking the dangers of drink seriously.
It is a tokenistic gesture which, while providing a major financial boost to alcohol retailers and manufacturers, will do nothing to improve the health and wellbeing of all our citizens.
