Race for city rentals

There's a world of difference between renting your home out in SW19 during Wimbledon Fortnight and renting out your home in G31 for the Commonwealth Games (Evening Times, December 10).

Property boss Mr Hanlon seems to think that, because of things such as Glasgow's Miles Better, the 1990 Garden Festival, the City of Culture, etc., that Glasgow has gone upmarket.

Try telling that to the many folk who are still living in damp tenements.

Re the Saracen Street upgrade (December 10): what a total and utter waste of money.

Just employ more street cleaners, for £447K you could employ a lot.

The council is seriously deluded if they think new flagstones will bring prosperity back to the area.

Wrong turning

Please Mr and Mrs Roads bosses, make my Christmas and change the traffic regulations at the Squinty Bridge.

While all the work is going on at Govan Road to install Fastlink, surely there could be no better time to change the crazy traffic plan. Currently, there is no left turn over the bridge coming from Finnieston Street, meaning you have to go half way to Govan before you can turn back.

If this isn't the time to put a tiny little turn in - when is?

Re smartcards: I don't often use the Subway, but on the occasions I do it's easier to buy a single ticket on the day.

I don't need or want a season ticket or monthly pass, but it is people like me who will be penalised unless I sign up for the new scheme. And what about the thousands of visitors to the city each year, and the extra people destined to visit for the city for the 2014 Games? Surely we are penalising the very people we are trying to attract.
