I hate the idea of these gated platforms. Yes they may be able to line the train up electronically with the hole almost every time but what about that time called an emergency ?

They tried these in Japan and they worked surprisingly well except they noticed a slight rise in deaths from folk disoriented who fell onto the line only to come back to the platform and find a solid wall with trains approaching.

Think outside the circle: Campaign launched to extend Glasgow's subway (© Evening Times)



A campaign has been launched to urge transport bosses to 'think outside the circle' and extend Glasgow's subway line.


The Glasgow Tube campaign has attracted over 200 hundred signatures since it was launched. The campaigners suggested
that Glasgow's East End could have stops at Glasgow Green, Bridgeton Cross, Celtic Park/Emirates Arena, The Forge Retail
Park, The Fort and Easterhouse.

In the South Side, stops are suggested for Bellahouston Park, Mosspark, Craigton, Cardonald, Penilee, Braehead Shopping
Centre, Crookston, Silverburn Shopping Centre, Shawlands and Pollokshields.

Those behind the campaign, aimed at SPT and the minister for transport Derek MacKay, say in the petition, "Extend Glasgow’s
subway network to reach more people in every corner of Glasgow. SPT and the Scottish Government need to finally deliver
on plans and invest in a comprehensive and far-reaching transport system for the long-term benefit of Glasgow’s people,
economy and environment. This will extend and enhance the subway’s ridership and improve everyone’s mobility - not just
those who live within the limited network of the current subway system."

The campaigners have even suggested what the new transport system could look like and suggest that it is being underused
because it is not accessible to the majority of Glaswegians. The petition explains, "Glasgow’s Subway network has being going
in circles for too long! Built in 1896, Glasgow has the third oldest underground in the world but unlike all other cities, Glasgow
has never extended its subway. The subway is not accessible to the majority living in Glasgow and as a result is underused for
a city of its size.

"The ridership of Glasgow’s subway compares poorly to that of geographically smaller and less populated cities such as Lisbon
whose annual underground ridership is 140.9 million, while Glasgow subway’s annual ridership is 12.8 mil, despite having the
larger population."

"Fewer cars mean less congestion, more space, and cleaner air above ground for cyclists, pedestrians and remaining motorists.
Glasgow has the lowest level of car ownership in Scotland, and some of the worst levels of air pollution. Many people have no
choice but to drive due to poor public transport provisions. An extended Subway network would provide a lifeline to isolated
communities, improve everyone's overall mobility, and reduce reliance on cars and the problem of scarcity of parking spaces."

Do you think they will have it finished in time for Partick Thistle's League Championship celebrations?

It would be interesting to see how they'd connect Paisley Gilmour Street with Paisley Canal station. There's never been a direct connection between the two stations.

Am I missing something here or are a lot, not all, of the proposed stations not already serviced by the rail network?

Agree. my first thought when I saw the map was that it was a proposal for light rail/tram, it actually might work for that,
