Sighthill

By Bob Doris MSP

This week I visited Sighthill with Councillor Allan Casey. We were joined by DRS Project Management & Design as well as representatives of Morgan Sindall, Glasgow City Council’s infrastructure Contractor.

It was good to see the progress in Sighthill. This development will see a huge number of new homes coming to the constituency, as well as a brand new school campus. The transformation is part of a £250m masterplan in partnership with the Scottish Government, Glasgow City Council and GHA.

BuggyPath1

By Bob Doris MSP

Long overdue buggy path to be built at school in Ruchill.

It was good to finally celebrate the news that the schools at Benview Campus in Ruchill Park will get a new buggy path at Panmure Street. Parents have been fighting for a buggy path since the new campus opened in 2013 to try and prevent many families having to bump prams and buggies up dozens of steps twice a day. The previous Council administration crazily failed to ensure access to the new campus was fully accessible and family friendly.
