Some out of date info there re Lincoln Ave and Kestrel Rd all but 2 of those blocks have been reprieved and are in the process of being refurbed, with external cladding, removal of verandas rewired, replumbed, kitchens, windows etc.
The blocks that are still going are the 2 nearest Archerhill Rd, they are still occupied at the moment, so will be some time before they come down.

Because Glasgow will bid to host some kind of youth "olympics" or something, the idea now is to demolish all of Sighthill.
