WITH regards to Glasgow facing a three-year wait for air quality improvements (Tuesday).
If we had a citywide underground train system with reasonable prices, I think you could vastly reduce the buses, taxis and cars travelling into the city.
By reducing the buses, other commercial traffic could travel faster around the city. I would rather have a proper underground system than the Commonwealth Games.
If we are trying to reduce city centre emissions, is it not crazy to run buses up Queen Street from Argyle Street, along Ingram Street to Glassford Street and then back down Glassford Street to Argyle Street simply to have a short pedestrian shopping zone?
I would like to commend the Evening Times on the coverage of the slime problem on the GoMA building (Monday).
Can the council not think 'out of the box' and consult with talented city engineering students to find a solution to clean this problem up?
Glasgow's traffic light sequence seems to make no sense to me.
In peak hours I understand that there needs to be a certain lights loop to allow traffic to move through the city. However, I find that outwith peak hours you can be left at red lights for a long time considering there is very little traffic movement.
Can we not look at ways of having a sensor-operated system? We are already facing longer delays at some lights in Waterloo Street due to the dedicated bike lane having its own traffic light system. If you ask me, we could get the city moving a lot more efficiently if we looked at the light timing issue.

I'd have thought Bob Dudley, chief executive of BP, has enough on his plate without poking his nose into the matter of Scottish independence.
One would have thought BP was drilling in Scottish waters for our sole benefit and not to enhance company profit.
